Figure skating school named after Yevgeny Plushchenko opens in Yerevan

As a big fan of figure skating, I was thrilled with the news of opening new figure skating school in Yerevan named after one of my favourite figure skaters Yevgeny Plushchenko. This new school will operate at the Yerevan Sports and Concert Complex after Karen Demirchyan. Plyushchenko himself was in Yerevan to attend the opening ceremony (27 December) which was marked by an amazing show. Famous Hungarian composer and violinist Edvin Marton was in attendance too.

During Eurovision 2008 song contest Plushchenko and Marton took part in Dima Bilan's on stage performance as part of the winning Russian song Believe.

Below are couple of clips from the Yerevan show (via Tert.am). Simply fabulous!
