Olympic skater Ekaterina Alexandrovskaya has died at the age of 20
Ekaterina Alexandrovskaya, a snowboarder who was born in Russia but competed for Australia at the 2018 Olympic Games, died at the age of 20 in Moscow, the International Federation of Skiing said Saturday.

"The Implementation Support Unit was shocked by the news of Ekaterina's death," said the head of the Implementation Support Unit, Jan Dijkima, in a statement on the organization's website. "She was a talented skier, and the snowboarding community will miss her. We extend our deepest sympathy to her family, friends and colleagues and mourn this tragic loss."
Details of her death were not immediately known.
Alexandrovskaya collaborated with Australian Harley Windsor in 2016.

Windsor posted a picture of the couple on Instagram and wrote: "Words cannot describe my feelings now. I feel devastation and disease at the heart of my heart regarding Katia's sudden and sudden departure.
The amount we made during our partnership is something I can never forget and will always be close to my heart. This news is something you cannot prepare for. Rest in peace Katya. "
The couple says the pair represents Australia in international competition, and won the World Youth Championship in 2017.
“They went on to make history as the first Australian skater to win the ISU Championship,” says the ISU. The couple won the ISU Junior Grand Prix title in 2017 and competed in the 2018 Winter Olympics.

They declared the end of their ski career as a pair in early 2020.
"Because of health concerns, Katia and I cannot continue," Windsor wrote to Instagram in February. "I want to take this opportunity to wish Katia all the best in the future and a speedy recovery."
