Why is the girl dancer of Azerbaijan named Kristin Fraser?

Well, because she was born in Montclair, New Jersey, which is very far from Azerbaijan. Her partner, Igor Lukanin, is from Ekaterinburg, Russia, which is closer to Azerbaijan though the couple trains in New Jersey, which leads us to think that Fraser is going nowhere near Azerbaijan.

Lukanin’s hobby, by the way, is going to the sauna. Fraser’s hobbies are sleeping and watching TV. She doesn’t say whether that’s in or out of the sauna.


Not to fear, the couple also has a website. But be careful. They also sell real estate!

It’s hard not to read the fine print of the media guide during the four hours of ice dancing finals.
