Kiira Korpi in one sentence – Kiira is a beautiful blonde from Finland and a great athlete.
Figure skating is much more than sport; it is also art and a lifestyle.
By falling a million times you can either get permanently injured or become a butterfly.
My sister is still my best support and example.
I know what I want and I’ve decided to get it.
Korpi began ice skating when she was five.
She is one of the best and most successful female Finnish figure skaters ever.
Korpi is the four times Finish National Champion (2009, 2011, 2012 and 2013); 2007 and 2009 European Bronze Medalist; 2012 European Silver medalist, and the 2010 Trophée Eric Bompard champion.
Her nickname is “Ice Princess” because she is considered the most beautiful woman in figure skating.
Kiira is fluent in Finnish, Swedish, German and English.
She withdrew from the 2013 European Championships and 2013 World Championships due to injury (inflammation in her left Achilles tendon).
Always remember that true beauty comes from within.
