In mid-1994, Krylova teamed up with Oleg Ovsyannikov. That same year they moved with their coaches Natalia Linichuk and Gennadi Karponosov to Newark, Delaware. Krylova injured her back in training shortly before they were set to leave for 1994 Skate America. The rink workers had forgot to close the gate and she stumbled as she skated backward. Aggravated by intense training, the injury would plague her throughout her career.
During the 1995–96 season, Krylova and Ovsyannikov won silver at Skate America and gold at Nations Cup to qualify for the Champions Series Final (later renamed the Grand Prix Final) where they took silver. They also won silver at the Russian, European and World Championships. They were second at these events to Oksana Grishuk and Evgeni Platov.
During the 1996–97 season, Krylova and Ovsyannikov won three gold medals on the Champions Series at Skate America, Nations Cup and Cup of Russia. They qualified for the Champions Series Final in Canada where they were placed second to Canadians Shae-Lynn Bourne and Victor Kraatz. Krylova and Ovsyannikov won the silver medal at the European and World Championships, second at both events to Grishuk and Platov.
During the 1997–98 season, Krylova and Ovsyannikov won gold medals at Nations Cup and Cup of Russia but did not compete at the Champions Series Final. They won silver at the European Championships and followed it up with silver at the 1998 Olympics in Nagano, Japan. They were second at both events to Grishuk and Platov who retired after the Olympics. At the 1998 World Championships, they won their first World title ahead of Marina Anissina and Gwendal Peizerat.
During the 1998–99 season, Krylova and Ovsyannikov won gold at Sparkassen Cup (formerly Nations Cup) and Cup of Russia to qualify for the Grand Prix Final. They won the title ahead of Anissina and Peizerat. They won their first European title and then capped off their career with their second World title.
Krylova and Ovsyannikov were planning to compete the following season and had prepared programs and costumes, however, doctors advised her to retire due to a risk of paralysis stemming from her back problem. She suggested that he team up with another skater but he declined. After a year, she felt more confident and they began performing in the less demanding world of professional skating. They won the 2001 World Professional title.
After ending her career, Krylova became a figure skating coach and choreographer alongside Pasquale Camerlengo. They worked for a year in Berlin, Germany, and since September 2006, at the Detroit Skating Club in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan in the U.S. Since 2018, Anjelika has moved from Michigan to Moscow, Russia to further grow high class athletes from a younger age. She has worked with the following skaters:
- Alexandra Aldridge / Daniel Eaton
- Federica Faiella / Massimo Scali
- Kaitlin Hawayek / Jean-Luc Baker
- Madison Hubbell / Zachary Donohue
- Madison Hubbell / Keiffer Hubbell
- Danielle O'Brien / Gregory Merriman
- Alexandra Paul / Mitchell Islam
- Nathalie Péchalat / Fabian Bourzat (May 2011 to May 2013)
- Kaitlyn Weaver / Andrew Poje
Krylova choreographed Johnny Weir's Dr. Zhivago program along with Giuseppe Arena.
In April 2018 Krylova moved to Moscow where she is coaching in collaboration with Oleg Volkov. As of May 2018 her skaters include following skaters:
From 1994, Krylova resided mainly in Delaware, with some time also in Europe, before moving to Detroit, Michigan in 2006. She is a quarter Uzbek through her grandmother. She and Pasquale Camerlengo have two children, Stella, born in July 2005, and Anthony, born in September 2007. Stella and Anthony now live in Moscow with her mother, while Pasquale comes to visit the kids every so often.
