Marina Alexeevna Eltsova (Russian: Марина Алексеевна Ельцова; born 4 February 1970) is a Russian pair skater. She represented the Soviet Union until its fall, and, after that, Russia. With partner Andrei Bushkov, she is the 1996 World champion and a two-time (1993 and 1997) European champion.
Eltsova and Bushkov missed the 1997–1998 Champions Series Final because Bushkov had a groin injury. They withdrew from the 1998 European Championships – Bushkov's right blade broke during the short program. The pair competed at the 1998 Winter Olympics, where they placed seventh. They were coached by Natalia Pavlova in Saint Petersburg.
Eltsova previously skated with Sergei Zaitsev, representing the Soviet Union.
Eltsova is married and has a daughter. She currently is a figure skating coach at several rinks in the Kansas City metro area.
