Sara Hurtado (born 3 November 1992) is a Spanish ice dancer. With Kirill Khaliavin, she is the 2018 Rostelecom Cup silver medalist and 2017 Spanish national champion. The two placed 12th at the 2018 Winter Olympics and are the first Spanish ice dancers to stand on a Grand Prix podium.

With her previous skating partner, Adrián Díaz, Hurtado won six senior international medals and five Spanish national titles. They skated in the final segment at the 2014 Winter Olympics, finishing 13th, and at eleven ISU Championships, achieving their best result (5th) at the 2015 European Championships. Hurtado/Díaz were the first dance team to represent Spain in ISU competition[1] and the first to qualify for the Olympics.

Personal life[edit]

Sara Hurtado was born 3 November 1992 in Madrid.[2] She studied journalism at Universidad Francisco de Vitoria before moving to Canada.[2][3] In 2016, she enrolled at the British School of Art and Design in Moscow.[4]

Skating career[edit]

Early years[edit]

Hurtado began skating in 2001.[5] Her mother signed her up for lessons when an ice rink opened nearby.[6] She competed in singles but became interested in switching to ice dancing in 2006, when Adrià Díaz asked her to attend a summer camp organized by the Spanish federation (FEDH) with French coach Romain Haguenauer.[7] Hurtado said, "We begged the Federation for two years, please, please, we want to do ice dance."[8] In early 2008, FEDH hired British coach John Dunn to teach ice dancing in Madrid.[8][3][9]

2008–2009 season: Debut of Hurtado/Díaz[edit]

Hurtado/Díaz began competing together internationally in the 2008–09 season. Their first major international event was the 2009 World Junior Championships in Sofia, Bulgaria, where they finished 32nd.

2009–2010 season[edit]

Hurtado/Díaz competed in two events on the Junior Grand Prix circuit and finished 16th at the 2010 World Junior Championships in The Hague, Netherlands.

2010–2011 season[edit]

Hurtado/Díaz competed on the Junior Grand Prix circuit, while also taking part in several senior internationals. They finished 15th at the 2011 European Championships in Bern, Switzerland, won a bronze medal at the Bavarian Open, and finished fourth at the Winter Universiade.

They placed ninth at the World Junior Championships in Gangneung, South Korea. They then competed in Moscow, Russia, at their first senior World Championships; although the two qualified for the short dance out of the preliminary round, they were unable to reach the free dance portion of the event.

2011–2012 season[edit]

Hurtado/Díaz moved to London, England, in mid-2011 after Dunn accepted a coaching job in his native country.[6][10] In November, they competed at their first-ever Grand Prix event, the 2011 Trophée Éric Bompard, where they placed 8th (last). In December 2011, they ended their relationship with Dunn and relocated to Montreal, Quebec, Canada, to train under Marie-France Dubreuil and Patrice Lauzon.[11][12][13]

Ranked 12th in the short dance and 17th in the free dance, Hurtado/Díaz finished 16th at the 2012 European Championships in Sheffield, England. They qualified to the free dance at the 2012 World Championships in Nice, France, and finished 19th overall.

2012–2013 season[edit]

Hurtado/Díaz did not compete on the Grand Prix series. They placed 15th at the 2013 European Championships in Zagreb, Croatia, and 19th at the 2013 World Championships in London, Ontario, Canada.

2013–2014 season: Sochi Olympics[edit]

At the 2013 Nebelhorn Trophy, Hurtado/Díaz became the first ice dancers to qualify an Olympic entry for Spain.[14] They had no Grand Prix assignments. In January 2014, they finished 10th at the 2014 European Championships in Budapest, Hungary, allowing Spain to send two ice dancing teams to the next Europeans.[15]

One month later, Hurtado/Díaz competed at the Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia;[2] they set personal best scores in both segments and finished in 13th place. They ended their season with a 16th-place result at the 2014 World Championships in Saitama.

2014–2015 season[edit]

Returning to the Grand Prix series, Hurtado/Díaz placed 8th at the 2014 Skate Canada International and 4th at the 2014 Trophée Éric Bompard. They then achieved career-best ISU Championship results, finishing 5th with a new personal best score at the 2015 European Championships in Stockholm, Sweden, and then 14th at the 2015 World Championships in Shanghai, China.

2015–2016 season: Hurtado/Díaz part ways[edit]

Hurtado/Díaz were invited to two Grand Prix events – the 2015 Trophée Éric Bompard and the 2015 Rostelecom Cup. However, on 16 October 2015, Hurtado announced on her personal Facebook page that she had decided to end the partnership.[16][17] In a later interview, Hurtado stated that their partnership had experienced problems for some time and that therapy had not helped resolve these issues.[18]

2016–2017 season: Debut of Hurtado/Khaliavin[edit]

Hurtado and Russia's Kirill Khaliavin began considering skating together in late December 2015 and had a tryout in March 2016 in Moscow.[19][7] He was released to skate for Spain in September 2016.[20] They decided to be coached by Alexander Zhulin in Moscow.[21] Making their international debut, they won gold at the Santa Claus Cup, held in December 2016 in Hungary. Later in the month, they won the Spanish national title ahead of Olivia Smart / Adrià Díaz.

Hurtado/Khaliavin finished 13th at the 2017 European Championships in Ostrava, Czech Republic. It was their final competition of the season. The Federación Española Deportes de Hielo (FEDH) selected Smart/Díaz to compete at the 2017 World Championships, the main Olympic-qualifying competition.[22] Their result allowed Spain to send one ice dancing team to the Olympics.

2017–2018 season: Winter Olympics[edit]

In July 2017, FEDH announced that Spain's Olympic spot in ice dancing would go to the team which received the highest combined score at the 2017 CS Golden Spin of Zagreb and Spanish Championships.[23]

Hurtado/Khaliavin began their season in October with a 6th-place result at the 2017 CS Finlandia Trophy. The following month, they won gold at the Open d'Andorra. In December, they finished fourth at the 2017 CS Golden Spin of Zagreb, just 0.30 points behind bronze medalists Kaitlin Hawayek / Jean-Luc Baker of the United States. They outscored Smart/Díaz by 4.18 points at Golden Spin and finished second at the Spanish Championships with a 3.23 deficit, resulting in a final advantage of 0.95 points. On 17 December 2017, FEDH announced that Hurtado/Khaliavin would compete at the European Championships and Olympics while Smart/Díaz would be assigned to the 2018 World Championships.[24][25]

In January, Hurtado/Khaliavin placed 7th in the short dance, 10th in the free dance, and 8th overall at the 2018 European Championships in Moscow. In February, they competed at the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea.[26] Ranked 12th in the short and 11th in the free, the two finished 12th overall.

2018–2019 season[edit]

Hurtado/Khaliavin began their season with bronze at the 2018 CS Lombardia Trophy in September. The following month, making their Grand Prix debut, they placed fourth at the 2018 Grand Prix of Helsinki and then won silver at the 2018 Rostelecom Cup, becoming the first Spanish ice dancers to stand on a Grand Prix podium.
