apparently people think that guy Viktor from Yuri on Ice would skate around with fireworks shooting out of his skates, so here are some more “extra” things Alexei Yagudin has done in his life, for inspiration:
hung 20 feet in the air above an ice rink with no safety harness or net
won the olympics a few months after suffering from an eating disorder
fought a fucking bull
was set on fire
landed a triple jump 3 months after having his entire right hip replaced
got mooched by perfect human being Stéphane Lambiel
