Anna Grigorievna Semenovich (Russian: А́нна Григо́рьевна Семено́вич, born 1 March 1980) is a Russian singer, actress, model, and former competitive ice dancer.

Skating career[edit]

Early in her career, Semenovich skated with Denis Samokhin. They competed at two World Junior Championships, placing 8th in 1993 and 7th in 1994. After a brief partnership with Maxim Kachanov, placing fifth at the 1994 Goodwill Games, she teamed up with Vladimir Fedorov in 1995. They won the Finlandia Trophy twice[1][2] and competed on the Grand Prix of Figure Skating. The highlight of their partnership was competing at the 1998 World Championships, where they placed 15th. Their partnership ended in 1999 and Semenovich teamed up with Roman Kostomarov for one season. With Kostomarov, she is the Russian bronze medalist and competed at both the 2000 European Championships[3] and the 2000 World Championships.[4]

Following the end of that partnership, she reunited with Denis Samokhin and placed 4th at the 2001 Russian Championships. She eventually retired due to injury.
