Ice skating is a sport that leaves many of us breathless with how magical the shows can be. But when married duo Alexa Scimeca-Knierim and Chris Knierim performed a routine to “My Heart Will Go On,” the result was on a whole other level.
If you’re someone that loves to be dazzled by beauty, then you’re going to appreciate the video below. After all, it’s a flawless ice skating routine melted with a Céline Dion classic. Enough said.
Good chemistry is important when athletes join together to perform, especially in dance and ice skating. With Alexa and Chris, who have been married since 2016, they’re the perfect match.
Alexa first took Chris on as her skating partner back in 2012. As their relationship grew, they also began succeeding as a pair out on the ice. Since 2015, they’ve taken home numerous titles including being awarded the bronze medal at the 2018 Winter Olympics.
The Knierims have a signature move that has left many audience members mesmerized. It’s called a “quad twist.”
For a quad twist, Chris tosses his wife into the air and she spins four times before falling back into his arms. According to a First Coast News article, they were the first Americans to pull off the move in the Olympics.
During the couple’s routine set to “My Heart Will Go On,” Alexa and Chris once again showed everyone how much passion they have for both skating, as well as each other.
If you were a fan of the 1997 film Titanic, then likely the budding romance between Jack and Rose stole your heart. Get ready to feel the love again in the couple’s performance.
Wife Alexa looks stunning in a cream-colored lacy costume, while Chris is wearing a shirt made of silk. It doesn’t take long before they show the world just how talented of skaters they really are.
At 33 seconds in, Chris throws his wife up as if she’s weightless. Alexa then completes the move by performing multiple twists. But there was so much more to come.
The Knierims glide gracefully along the ice during their routine, which is full of stunning moves that leave your jaw on the floor. At one point, Chris even carries his partner in the air using a single hand.
If you’re a sap for watching lovebirds be prepared to have your heartstrings pulled.
Throughout the performance, it seems as if the couple might kiss right there on the ice. This, combined with their spectacular skills, along with the music – is what brings the magic to new heights.
People all over the world have been enamored by Alexa and Chris’ “My Heart Will Go On” routine.
On YouTube, one person wrote:
“I really really love their performance! It gaves me chills!”
Another commenter just had to ask a question that a lot of us were probably thinking.
“Are they real or made up of Elastic Rubber?”
In regards to skating together, it’s not all about the awards. According to the Los Angeles Times, during the 2018 Olympics Alexa explained:
“This journey is really between Chris and I. It’s not about our score and it’s not about the other teams being better than us. It’s deeper than that. It’s our joy and love for skating.”
