Alena Kostornaya switched to pair skating
The 2020 European champion in women’s singles Alena Kostornaya has finished her cooperation with coach Elena Buyanova and switched to pair skating.
Kostornaya switched to Buyanova from Eteri Tutberidze in March 2022. In September, the figure skater underwent hip surgery, after which she tried herself in pair skating in a pair with Georgy Kunitsa in the format of shows.
“I let her go a long time ago because she started palying with these pair elements. I told her that there was no need to contact me about pair skating.
And they went to Sergei Roslyakov. He called me back, to which I replied, “If she wants to do pair skating, let her do it.” He said, “Yes, she asked to try pair skating.” In general, Alena chose pair skating,” said Elena Buyanova.
