News on the recent ISU Best Newcomer Award winner, Alena Kostornaia

This is where we discuss figure skating and skating related items. How did you favourite skaters perform, and so on? However we never speculate on the private lives of skaters, like who might be going out with whom, because that is poison and is not tolerated here. A good guideline is that if it's not publicly announced, in the papers etc. then it's probably best to leave it alone. Is it a gray area? Then write to me and ask.

You may be familiar with one of the authors, Nick McCarvel has done some work in the past with Jackie Wong (RockerSkating). He recently made a move to the Olympic network.

More news - Russian media reports that Alena Kostornaia has parted ways with coach Eteri Tutberidze. The source is an Instagram post by Tutberidze in which she confirmed that Kostornaia is moving to Plushenko’s training group. I understand that Eteri was a bit unkind in her remarks about Alena :(
