Sinead and John Kerr, the siblings who ice dance together, proved how good they were during the 2008 World Figure Skating Championships.


At that moment, Sinead was 29 and her brother was 27. They got on the ice wearing traditional Scottish clothes and, what made the audience imagine what their upcoming dance routine would be about.

In the video uploaded to the Brau Avitia YouTube channel, the team could be seen starting the choreography in the middle of the ‘stage’ when the music of a Scottish traditional pipe band began playing.

The siblings’ movements were as synchronized as they could be and even though they didn’t make that many jumps, all the twirls and steps they did were enough to make the audience cheer them throughout the routine.

One of the most interesting things they did was sliding across the ice while Sinead was climbing on John’s leg with her legs up and her head down. What captured people’s attention was that she was holding herself using only one arm.


Just a few seconds after that, they did another breathtaking movement. While gliding, Sinead laid back and John laid to his side to hold his sister’s weight so she didn’t touch the ice, even though she was inches away from it.

Later, the rhythm of the music and their movements got faster and, again, they did everything in perfect synchronization. At the end of their routine, people gave them a well-deserved standing ovation.

After that performance, which was labeled as the best one in their careers so far, they won two European bronze medals: the first one in 2009 and the second one in 2011.

The siblings also won the British National Championships two times, once in 2004 and once in 2010. At the 2006 Winter Olympic Games held in Turin, Italy, they ended up in the 10th position.

At the following edition of the Winter Olympics, held in Vancouver, Canada, they placed 8th. One year later, in 2011, they retired from competitive ice skating but kept participating in shows around the world.
