Her best individual finishes at major senior internationals were fifth in 100 at the 1996 Olympics and sixth in 200 at the 1997 World Championships. Her one international individual victory came in the 100 metres at the 1996 European Cup. With the sprint relay, she won silvers at the 1992 Olympics (for the Unified Team) and at the 1994 Europeans, for Russia, but at lesser meets, she won relay golds at the 1995-97 European Cups. After finishing her sports career in 2004, Trandenkova worked as a fitness coach in St. Petersburg. In the 1990s she was married to pole vaulter Igor Trandenkov, but they later divorced.
