Superior Russian ice dance couple split, swap partners with third Russian team

Elena Ilinykh, skating until recently with Nikita Katsalapov, will start training together with Ruslan Zhiganshin. They intend to train in Moscow - in the coaching group of Elena Kustarova/Svetlana Alexeeva.
With regard to training plans, Ilinykh's former partner Nikita Katsalapov expressed desire to continue skating with Victoria Sinitsina (former partner of Ruslan Zhiganshin), it all depends on how quickly the athletes will be able to settle all organizational problems. Nikolai Morozov, under whose leadership Nikita with his new partner are going to train, does not intend to continue his coaching activities in Russia and plans to work permanently in Hackensack, USA.
