Katya Ice Skater Death – Russian-Australian Olympian, Ekaterina ‘Katya’ Alexandrovskaya, was found dead after falling to her death from a balcony in Moscow. She was 20 years old. On July 17, 2020, the body of figure skater Katya was discovered in the basement of the Moscow apartment complex in which she and her mother had been living. Her coach, the former figure skating champion of Australia Belinda Noonan, does not believe that she committed suicide, despite the fact that she left a note that was quite upsetting.
After discovering a note written by the skater that simply said, “I love,” the authorities concluded that the shocking death of the 20-year-old was the result of a suicide. During the time that Alexandrovskaya was living in Sydney, she was having a difficult time coping with the death of her father, which ultimately led to her drinking excessively.
In addition to this, she had a hard time making ends meet because her mother was unable to provide for her and because she frequently had to sleep on the couches of her friends because ice skating funding had been slashed. After that, she found work at the Canterbury Ice Rink, where she volunteered to assist with children’s birthday parties and was delighted to meet new people.
Noonan stated that whenever they went out, she would make it a point to take Alexandrovskaya to the grocery store with her so that she could make sure that she was getting enough to eat. Noonan sent Alexandrovskaya to see a professional psychologist as soon as she heard that the rumor was spreading that she was coming to training under the influence of alcohol.
A few months later, in January, she sent Ms. Noonan a message through text message informing her that she would not be attending the training session because she was feeling ill. After being observed for a period of two weeks there, a diagnosis of epilepsy was made regarding her condition, and she was informed that she could no longer skate.
Alexandrovskaya’s diagnosis led to her having to retire from the sport she had been playing for the past year, which caused her to spiral into a profound melancholy. Friends also alleged that the star, who was born in Russia, found the coronavirus quarantine to be demoralizing at a time when she was simultaneously attempting to establish a new life back in her native country.
