Figure Skater Anna Shcherbakova Pulls Off Costume Change During Routine

15-year-old Anna Shcherbakova pulls off an incredible costume change during a recent ice-skating performance.


Anna is a Russian figure skater who has already made a name for herself in the skating world. Even though she is young, Anna has nearly mastered this difficult sport.

We all know that figure skaters have to put so much work and practice to perfect their routines. They are also tasked with having to tell a story using only their body.

Most skaters train for years and years in order to live out their dreams on the ice. But it’s all worth it when they get enter the rink and the crowd truly embraces every moment.

After overcoming injuries, such as a broken leg in 2017, Anna is ready to show the world what she can do. And that’s exactly what happens in this viral clip from the 2019 Skate America competition.

As Anna glides across the ice, the music is very soft and slow. But then, as she is spinning around, Anna completes a stunning costume change transforming into a beautiful red dress.

That’s when the tempo starts to pick up and Anna really starts to show off her skills. But if you thought that the costume change was easy, you would be mistaken.

We can hear the commentators remark that Anna described the skirt as very heavy. In fact, she has to practice in the skirt to get accustomed to the weight difference.

This routine earned Anna the gold medal and truly put her in a class of her own. I have a feeling we will be seeing more from this talented skater in the future.
