“Kostornaia hasn’t appeared in training for a long time, she only does PR. Once she was a European champion, but now she is nobody.” choreographer of Tutberidze’s group Alexei Zheleznyakov
Choreographer of Tutberidze’s group Alexei Zheleznyakov commented on Alena Kostornaia’s transfer to Elena Buyanova.
Alexei Zheleznyakov: You need to work, the coach is not important. You don’t need to look for your ass in the dark, if a person wants to, he will do it, if he doesn’t want to, the opposite is true, and you can change coaches as much as you like.
Alena has not appeared in training for a long time, she only does PR. Once she was a European champion, but now she is nobody.
Eteri Georgievna always says “When you get off the pedestal, you are nobody”, everything in our life works like that.
If Alena decided so, let everything be fine with her, but even if God descends from heaven, nothing will come of it without personal desire.
Alexei Zheleznyakov: It has long been clear to everyone that Kostornaia did not appear in Khrustalny and did not work. Now Alena has moved to another coach. Buyanova is a great coach! But for her Kostornaya is such a ballast. I don’t envy her. Kostornaya’s career ended on her little finger. Eteri Georgievna perfectly emphasized the situation. That even with a broken little finger, not a leg, you can work and achieve success. And now Kostornaia is with Buyanova. For God’s sake! Tutberidze demands to work. She is a demanding coach… What can I say?
And now Kostornaia should succeed. Do you believe in it? I always tell my students: even though God himself will descend, but nothing will happen until you yourself want it. Nothing! And this applies to Kostornaia. And what will Buyanova give her? The same thing, you don’t need to invent a bicycle. Buyanova will demand to work, and Alena will show off: no, I don’t want anything. To summarize: it’s all show-off! There is business and work, but there are show-offs.
