The Instagram page for the St. Petersburg’s Figure Skating Federation posted about the city’s closed test skates on Saturday, and Stanislava Konstantinova was back to winning form.
According to the results, Konstantinova received 193.78 points to be at the top of the ladies’ standings. 2019 European Champion Sofia Samodurova was second with 188.56 points, and 18-year-old Elizaveta Nugumanova was third with a total score of 158.97 points.
Konstantinova was fourth at the Russian Nationals for two years in a row and medaled at the ISU Grand Prix event in Finland during the 2018-2019 season; however, since then her performances haven’t been as consistent and she failed to make the top ten at both Grand Prix assignments last season, as well as at last year’s National Championship.
Before the start of the new season, the 20-year-old college student decided to change coaches and moved to train with Evgeny Plushenko and his team. The skater made a post on Instagram following the test skate today.
Konstantinova’s post and translation to English:
First among the men was Andrei Mozalev, with 279.85 points. Evgeny Semenenko was second with 273.15 point, and Mikhail Kolyada was third with 257.45 points.
