2014 Olympic gold medalist Adelina Sotnikova announced on Instagram that she is releasing an autobiography. The book is titled Heart of Ice and the preliminary release date online is December 4.
The 208-page book’s description says: “I, Adelina Sotnikova, the first individual Olympic champion in women’s single skating in Russian history, want to share with you the most honest story of my journey. You supported me on the Olympic ice, and thanks to you, I received my most expensive gold medal. You will find out what was behind each performance, how hard each jump was, what each point was worth in the competition.”
The description continues, “I want this book to be not only a reflection of mine, but also the beginning of your story. In the book you will find my professional advice on how to prepare to practice figure skating, which exercises to start with and, most importantly, how to perform them. Inside: QR codes by which you can watch a video of each jump in my performance! This book is for everyone who, like me, is infinitely in love with the world of figure skating.”
