Scottish skating partners, John and Sinead Kerr, who are brother and sister, delivered a jaw-dropping performance with their risky routine in 2008.


When Winter Olympics comes around, many are looking forward to watching the figure skating competition.

While most people enjoy watching the current teams dance circles around the ice, avid fans love to re-watch old, yet iconic routines such as the Kerrs’ 2008 performance.

The brother and sister were famous for their freestyle dancing. With the help of their choreographer, they turned what could be just another mundane routine into a legendary one.

During the 2008 World Figure Skating Championships that was held in Gothenburg, Sweden, the pair did a Scottish dance routine


The pair went all in with the theme and chose Scottish music and costume. John even wore a traditional kilt.

When the music started, they started to perform. Slowly, as the song progressed, they began to build up their energy and performed risky stunts and tricks.

The way they moved was mesmerizing to watch. The people in the audience were instantly hooked, and they cheered for John and Sinead every time they would successfully perform a big skating stunt.

There was a point in their performance that Sinead was upside down, holding on to her brother, as they circled the rink.

What stunned the crowd was that she was clinging to her brother with only one hand while John was not even using his hands to support his sister’s weight.

As they finished their routine, fans raised their flags and shouted cheers for the skating duo.


The panel of judges was also in awe of their performance and gave them high scores.

John and Sinead had competed in many big competitions, including two Olympics, seven World Championships, and eight European Championships.

Before they decided to retire in 2011, the pair won two Scottish titles and seven British ones.
