One type of competitive performance that you can barely blink watching, and that fills you with so much excitement is figure skating.

This is undeniably jaw-dropping because it’s so darn difficult to do.

Becoming a pro at figure skating would require so much hard work, dedication, and passion to dance fearlessly on ice. You cannot also ignore the risk with the stunts the performers make while rocketing over a slippery surface.

Sinead Kerr and John Kerr are among the best in the sport. They became more popular when they competed in the World Figure Skating Championships.

The crowd’s cheer of excitement made them enthusiastic as they make their way into the rink to showcase their talent.

Showing their Scottish heritage, they wore matching kilts.

Getting ready for the big moment, they prepared themselves at the center of the rink while waiting for their cue through the music and begin their routine.

As the music starts playing, the two remain in their poses for a moment, looking at the ice.

It’s getting more exciting as the sound, with fiddle and bagpipe, is softly played in the background. They are about to dance to the music “Erin Shore,” a traditional Irish tune.

John looks and smiles at his sister, signaling that they are now ready to show off what they’ve been working so hard for in preparation for the competition.

They make a fun-looking move to start their performance.

They skate towards each other, lock their skates and pull each other in the opposite direction.

The pair then skate in circles and move faster around the rink in rhythm to the bagpipe.

With the way they do their routine, they make it look so easy.

But, simply thinking about putting your feet in those figure skates can make your knees tremble in fear.

The crowd gets more excited with every move the siblings make. They draw their bodies closer to each other and begin to crouch and spin much faster.

It’s only a few seconds since they started, but the crowd’s already quite impressed with their routine.

As the music “Erin Shore” continues to play, they transition their routine into an ice skating dance. But, the crowd hails a loud cheer when the duo does another breathtaking stunt when Sinead turned upside down holding John’s leg for support as he keeps moving on the rink.

The music then gradually turns a little more upbeat with the sound of the drums. The duo keeps doing their routine with more excitement and enthusiasm, executing more spins and moving in circles. And the Scottish version of “Auld Lang Syne” starts playing.

This time, they perform what looks like a Scottish country dance.

The crowd claps along with the upbeat music as the pair performs their dance with much enjoyment. They just want to let the performers know how amazing they are with their brilliant routine on ice.

The Scottish jig is a delight to watch, and it’s pretty impressive as they do it in their figure skates.

As the siblings move to the end of their performance, they do a final spectacular stunt. John holds Sinead, making several turns before they both land a knee on ice with an arm stretched high. They’re both breathing heavily but still managed to smile.
