On 14th of May 2011, in her sixth season by Fehérvár KC, she surpassed Beatrix Balogh's all-time league scoring record, who hit the back of the net 643 times while playing for the Székesfehérvár-based club. Triscsuk entered the court against Veszprém with only one goal short to the previous record and managed thirteen goals, thus becoming the new league topscorer of Fehérvár.[2]


As a youngster, Triscsuk played alongside Emiliya Turey, Lyudmila Postnova and Yekaterina Andryushina in the Russian youth national teams, however, she never made a full international appearance.[3] Since 2004 Triscsuk lives in Hungary and in October 2012 she obtained the Hungarian citizenship.[4] On 10 December 2012 she was called up to the Hungarian squad for the 2012 European Women's Handball Championship as a replacement for Melinda Vincze.[5] Triscsuk made her debut a day later against Romania in a 25–19 victory, with that Hungary secured its place in the semi-finals of the European Championship.[6]
