Alexander Zhulin commented on the statements of Alena Kostornaia, a former figure skater of Eteri Tutberidze’s group.
Earlier, Kostornaia called Tutberidze’s method a “conveyor” where achieving results is done “by any means.”
“When Kostornaia won the European Championships she didn’t give any interviews. Everything was fine with her then. But when her career went downhill, then all these unpleasant comments and interviews appeared immediately. I think Eteri Georgievna will somehow survive all these comments,” Zhulin said.
Tatiana Tarasova also reacted to Alena Kostornaia’s words about working in Eteri Tutberidze’s group.
“Kostornaia should have a conscience. She should be ashamed of her words. Everyone knows her because she was with Eteri,” Tarasova told Sport Express.

Alena Kostornaia: “Eteri Tutberidze is a result-oriented coach who use any methods to achieve them, because it’s a conveyor. When one breaks, the next one comes.”
We used to have “Similar Pairs” and even similar pairs competitions according to Janet Carpenter, who skated in them. Also, I judged both same sex dance and same sex pairs in the Gay Games of 1994. It is another window into the infinite variety of this sport!
