“This is a very, very good result for the first competition” Alena Kostornaia about her performance at the 4th stage of the Russian Cup
Alena Kostornaia about her performance in the free program at the 4th stage of the Russian Cup and triple axel.
Alena Kostornaia: I talked with the coaches and decided not to jump triple axel. There were two quite good attempts out of five in training, this is not enough. Still, we work for a long term perspective, main competitions: World and European Championships, Olympic Games.
226 points – this is a very, very good result for the first competitions, considering the fact that I skated with mistakes and “died” in the middle of the program. There is something to work on, I’m scared to think what my choreographer and Sergei Alexandrovich (Rozanov -ed) will say about this skate. Of course, he helped in finalizing the program.
We usually we called up with Shae-Lynn Bourne, on Saturday one and a half hours that we coincided with the schedule – I took the headphones, put the phone and we worked. But in general, the main thing is to start.
