Biography

Born into a musical family, her grandparents and father being musicians and her niece a ballerina, Anzhelika Krylova was considered as a highly talented ice dancer in her youth, but a back injury sustained early in her career never let her achieve her full potential. In her early career, Krylova skated with Vladimir Lelyukh and Vladimir Fyodorov. With Fyodorov, she won the bronze medal at the 1993 World Championships and was sixth at the 1994 Winter Olympics, but their partnership was short-lived.

In mid-94, Krylova teamed up with Oleg Ovsyannikov and together they became one of the top ice dance couples in the late 1990s, overshadowed only by Pasha Grishchuk and Yevgeny Platov. Krylova/Ovsyannikov won Olympic silver in 1998 (behind Grishchuk and Platov), were World Champions in 1998 and 1999 (Grishchuk and Platov were absent), European Champions in 1999, won silvers at the 1996 and 1997 World and 1996-98 European Championships (behind Grishchuk and Platov) and a bronze at the 1995 European Championships.

Krylova and Ovsyannikov were also planning to compete in 2000 and had prepared programs and costumes, however, doctors advised her to retire due to a risk of paralysis stemming from her back problem. So they turned to the much less demanding and more remunerative professional skating. They won the 2001 World Professional Championships together, but the continuing back problems forced her to retire from sports soon after that. In 2004, Krylova married former Italian figure skater Pasquale Camerlengo and she has worked as a figure skating coach and choreographer alongside her husband, at first in Berlin, Germany and since 2006 in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan.
