Alena Kostornaia RUS
2018 Russian Nationals free skate
Alena Kostornaia has it all - wonderfully effortless movement, easy power and ice coverage, maturity in expression, explosive jumps.
After finishing 16th at the Russian Junior Championships the season before, she started last season with a mission, winning medals left and right on the junior international scene and establishing herself as one to watch.
But it was at Russian Nationals where she really made her presence known, finishing with the bronze over the likes of Elizaveta Tuktamysheva, Elena Radionova, and Polina Tsurskaya.
At 14, Kostornaia already shows the completeness that rivals the best senior women internationally. The sky’s the limit for her - can’t wait to see what she brings in the next few years.
