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.

    It’s always good to get the first skate over with. There is a lot to improve, taking into account that Alena is coming back from injury and a lack of conditioning. I hope in time that the step sequence is upgraded, that Alena can perform her spins as strongly as she should like to. They have a base now with which to work and complicate the program, adding in a 3A and a quad or two If she is able to. Good luck Alena.
