It was reported in the Russian media and later confirmed by Ksenia Tsibinova that the figure skater has switched from singles skating to pairs skating.

According to the 17-year-old, she has joined Nina Mozer’s team and will train with Filipp Tarasov and Dmitry Zobnin.

Recently, CSKA coach Sergei Davydov mentioned that Tsibinova told him if she cannot perform the most difficult elements and cannot compete for the top positions – then she does not see a point in continuing.

Tsibinova last appeared at the Cup of Russia Final in March of 2021 where she placed seventh. During the 2019-2020 season, she had won two stages of the Cup of Russia series, was first at the Tallinn Trophy, and also won the junior event at the Golden Spin of Zagreb.
