Monument to the skater in Yekaterinburg

In Yekaterinburg, on Kuibyshev street near the Yunost stadium, you can see a sculpture of a skater, as if frozen for a moment during an intense race in competitions.

Monument to the Unknown Skater in Yekaterinburg
All the muscles of the athlete are tense, the gaze is fixed somewhere forward on the finish line, and the smile on the face is a real athlete!

Happy skater in Yekaterinburg
The Skater Monument was erected in 1989. The authors of the project are sculptors V. A. Govorukhin and K. V. Grunberg. The three-meter sculpture was made in the workshops of the Art Fund of the Russian Federation in Nizhny Tagil.

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.

The address of the monument to the unknown skater: 32A, Kuibyshev street, Yekaterinburg.
