Korostylova qualified for the Ukrainian squad in pistol shooting at the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens, by virtue of exchanging quota places won by Germany in the rifle three positions with her spot in the air pistol, having achieved a mandatory Olympic standard of 381.[5] Korostylova started off her run by firing a score of 382 points to secure the tenth position in the women's 10 m air pistol prelims, tying her with four other shooters including 1988 Olympic bronze medalist Nino Salukvadze of neighboring Georgia.[6][7] In her second event, the 25 m pistol, Korostylova came strong from her immediate failure in the air pistol to edge out her teammate and Olympic champion Olena Kostevych by a single point with a score of 570, but ended up only in twenty-sixth out of thirty-seven shooters in the prelims.[8]
