Ekaterina Alexandrovskaya's Partner Asks Fans for Donations to ‘Flood’ Her Funeral with Flowers
The GoFundMe says that donations will be recognized on cards attached to the flowers and that donations of any size are welcomed.
"We have some amazing contacts making this possible in Russia who will coordinate the flowers and ensure all donations are honored and provide Katya with the beautiful service she deserves," the page says.
The Russian athlete died in Moscow, though additional details of her death were not immediately known, according to the Associated Press.
"The ISU is shocked by the news of Ekaterina's passing," President Jan Dijkema said in a statement on ISU's website. "She was a talented pair skater and the Figure Skating community will miss her. We offer our deepest sympathies to her family, friends and teammates and mourn this tragic loss."
Alexandrovskaya was born in Russia and gained her Australian citizenship in 2016. She retired from the sport in February due to injuries. She and Windsor also announced the end of their partnership at that time.
“Words can not describe how I feel right now, I am devastated and sick to my core about the sad and sudden passing of Katia,” Windsor previously wrote on Instagram following the news of her death, alongside a photo of the skating partners.
“The amount we had achieved during our partnership is something I can never forget and will always hold close to my heart,” he added. “This news is something you can never prepare for. Rest In Peace Katia.”
