Partnership with Dun
Early in her career, Agafonova competed with Dmitri Dun for Ukraine. They made their ISU Junior Grand Prix debut in the 2004–05 season. In 2006, they won their first JGP medal, silver, in Taipei. In 2007–08, Agafonova/Dun placed 4th in one JGP event and took silver in another. They qualified for the ISU Junior Grand Prix Final where they finished 6th. They then placed 7th at the 2008 World Junior Championships.
In 2008–09, Agafonova/Dun won gold and silver medals on the JGP series. They qualified for their second JGP Final and finished 7th. They won the 2009 Ukrainian national junior title and were sent to the 2009 World Junior Championships where they finished 13th. The following season, the duo obtained their fifth JGP medal, bronze. They parted ways at the end of the season.
Partnership with Uçar
In 2010, Agafonova teamed up with Alper Uçar to compete for Turkey. Early in their partnership, they were coached by Natalia Dubova and Oleg Voiko in the United States. They won a silver medal at the 2011 Winter Universiade in their first season together.
In 2013–14, Agafonova/Uçar began their season at the 2013 Nebelhorn Trophy, the final Olympic qualifying opportunity. By finishing 5th, they earned a spot for Turkey in the ice dancing event at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi. They then won a silver medal at the 2013 NRW Trophy.
Making their Grand Prix debut, Agafonova/Uçar placed 7th at the 2015 Trophée Éric Bompard in November. In December 2015, the two moved to Bloomfield Hills, Michigan to work with Anjelika Krylova and Pasquale Camerlengo due to visa problems which were exacerbated following the 2015 Russian Sukhoi Su-24 shootdown. They finished 12th at the 2016 European Championships in Bratislava and 21st at the 2016 World Championships in Boston.
The following season, Agafonova/Uçar received two Grand Prix assignments; they placed 9th at the 2016 Skate America and 8th at the 2016 Rostelecom Cup. They ranked 11th at the 2017 European Championships. The two placed 17th at the 2017 World Championships in Helsinki, Finland. Due to their result, Turkey qualified a spot in the ice dancing event at the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea.
