Ekaterina Viktorovna Pushkash (Russian: Екатерина Викторовна Пушкаш, born 27 May 1992) is a Russian ice dancer. With partner Jonathan Guerreiro, she is the 2011 World Junior silver medalist and 2011 Russian Junior silver medalist.
Ekaterina Pushkash originally trained in ballroom dancing and took up ice dancing because of her cousin. She and her maternal first cousin Dmitri Kiselev started skating together in 2000 and moved from Nizhny Novgorod to Moscow for training in 2002. They won silver medals at the 2008–2009 ISU Junior Grand Prix event in Gomel, Belarus and at the 2009 Russian Junior Championships. They finished sixth at Junior Worlds.
Partnership with Guerreiro
She and Jonathan Guerreiro began skating together in May 2009. They finished 5th at the 2009–2010 Junior Grand Prix Final and won the bronze medal at the 2010 Russian Junior Championships. At the end of the season, they switched coaches to Natalia Linichuk and Gennadi Karponossov, which required them to move to Aston, Pennsylvania in the United States.
During the 2010-2011 season, they finished 4th at the JGP Final. At the 2011 Russian Junior Championships, they won the silver medal and were assigned to the World Junior Championships where they won the silver medal.
Pushkash and Guerreiro moved up to the senior level for the 2011–2012 season. Guerreiro fractured his left foot in training in June 2011, causing them to miss a few weeks of training. They competed at two Grand Prix events, 2011 Skate Canada and 2011 Cup of Russia. Following the 2011–2012 season, they changed coaches to Nikolai Morozov in Moscow.
