Alena Kostornaia: “If I like skating something, I can skate the old program to this music, and it will look acceptable”
Alena Kostornaia about changing the free program to “Lovely” by Billie Eilish.
Alena Kostornaia: I came from the competitions (Finlandia Trophy), went to training, skated my short program, came to the coaches. They told me: it’s ok in general, but we are changing the free program. To my question “How?” I was told: “Well, that’s how we decided.” I couldn’t help but agree, because – why not?
This is last year’s music, which I really like, I told about it. And the same program, respectively. This is my style. For some time I have been taking music with lyrics and, let’s say, a certain style. Billie Eilish – it’s really mine.
If you have been jumping certain elements for a bunch of years, putting them together to any music is not a problem. If I like skating something, I can skate the old program to this music, and it will look acceptable. The main thing is that the athlete likes.
