Bad News: Andrey “Strogiy” Zaytsev has died Be-Mag March 22, 2012 General News This is terrible news for all of us. Russia, Europe even the world lost one of its best bladers, Andrey Zaytsev. I knew him personally, we used to skate together. He was one of the most stylish and natural talents in rollerblading, a skater ahead of his time, and besides his skating, he was such a nice, gifted and brave man. I think people will best remember him as part of the Iguana team, from his appearances in IMYTA street contest finals, or from his video sections that left you thinking "Who was that guy?".
