Ekaterina Gordeeva and Sergei Grinkov were the most electrifying pairs skaters of all time, winning Olympic gold medals and countless major championships. Partners on and off the ice, they were inseparable until Sergei's sudden, tragic death at the age of 28. In the inspiring, heartbreaking My Sergei, Katia tells the remarkable story of their storybook romance and extraordinary career, paying loving tribute to her exceptional husband. She also speaks eloquently of her battle to overcome grief after Sergei's death, her struggle to raise their daughter Daria, and her dramatic decision to skate again...alone.

While the story was written well, the chosen narrator was difficult fo understand, but even worst was the audio, scratchy, not very clear to hear.
I wish Ekaterina had narrated her words herself.
