Igor Zavozin

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Igor Leonidovich Zavozin (Russian: И́горь Леони́дович Заво́зин; 3 August 1955 – 29 May 2019[1]) was a Russian Soviet ice dancer. With partner and later-wife Elena Garanina,[2]he represented the Soviet Union in international competition, winning the 1978 Nebelhorn Trophy[3] and 1981 Winter Universiade, although they never made it to the World Figure Skating Championships due to the depth of the Soviet dance field.[4] After turning pro, Garanina and Zavozin toured with Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean. They were the parents of American ice dancer Maxim Zavozin and have since divorced.[5] Igor Zavozin was also an international ISU judge for Armenia.[6][7]
