“I started to restore my jumps, but fell again. I broke my left arm, but I continue to train.” Alena Kostornaia told that she prematurely ended this season
Alena Kostornaia told that she prematurely ended this season. She also spoke about the timing of the recovery from a fracture of the left hand.
Alena Kostornaia: I don’t stop training, I train. This is not some super-mode, but I no longer have competitions this season, there will be only shows. I calmly practice, but without jumps, without complex elements, the main thing is that I’m on the ice. It is inconvenient to tie skates, the rest is fine. Hand injury recovery time – 6 weeks.
I returned on the ice, started training, had been skating for a week and a half, started to restore my jumps, but fell again.
I broke my left arm, the base of the navicular bone broke off, which means six weeks in a cast. But I continue to train – my fingers are free, which means I can tie skates.
