Russian figure skater Alena Kostornaia turns 18 years old today. The Moscow native recently returned to the group of Eteri Tutberidze, after about a season with Evgeni Plushenko, and will be preparing for the 2022 Winter Olympics at the Sambo-70 club – Kostornaia was the 2020 European champion and the 2019-2020 International Skating Union (ISU) Grand Prix Final winner.

Because of great skating skills and a triple axel, Kostornaia is the current world record holder of the score for the short program (85.45 points) and the total competition score (247.59 points), which were both achieved at the 2019-2020 ISU Grand Prix Final.
