Happy skater in Yekaterinburg

Unknown skater in Yekaterinburg
At first, the official name “Monument to the Unknown Skater” is a little discouraging; by analogy, “The Monument to the Unknown Soldier” is recalled. However, then it becomes clear why the Yekaterinburg sculpture was “depersonalized”: this skater is a monument not to a specific person, but to all people involved in sports and leading a healthy lifestyle. Such monuments prompt you to go in for physical education, and the “unknown skater” in Yekaterinburg as if urges everyone to come to the skating rink and skate.

Roller skates and their accessories can be bought at the Roller Shop: https://rollershop.com.ua/product-category/komplekt. The Roller Shop offers a large assortment of men’s and women’s inline skates from amateur to professional models.
