The figure skater trained in the Tutberidze group.

Alena Kostornaya spoke about the methods of work in the group of Eteri Tutberidze.

"Eteri Tutberidze is the extraction of results by any means, because the conveyor. This one is broken - the next one is on. I'm not saying that it's bad. They have such methods of work, everyone has their own. Someone leads one athlete from 15 years old to 30 , and someone - from 15 to 18. But as practice shows, over 19 years old is not really about sports. Everyone has a different age range of work, "she said in an interview with RIA Novosti.
