Ilia Malinin Career
- In 2010, when he was just six years old, Malinin started roller skating in Reston, Virginia with the guidance of his parents. Malinin’s grandfather counseled his parents to have patience because “he’ll (gain) his triple jumps, (and then) you won’t be able to drag him away.”
- When Malinin was a boy, he frequently preferred playing soccer over training in a frigid arena. Malinin went on to win the titles of U.S. national juvenile champion in 2016, U.S. national intermediate champion in 2017, and U.S. national novice bronze medalist in 2019; however, he did not qualify for the U.S. Championships in 2018.
- At the Philadelphia Summer International, Malinin competed for the first time at the junior level and won gold, beating over his colleague from the United States, Nicholas Hsieh, as well as Darian Kaptich from Australia.
- On the 2019–20 ISU Junior Grand Prix, he competed in both the United States and Italy, where he finished seventh in Italy and fourth in the United States. Malinin was unable to participate in the 2020 United States Championships.
- The 2020–21 ISU Junior Grand Prix, in which Malinin was scheduled to compete, had to be postponed because of the widespread COVID-19 pandemic. After the Grand Prix series was changed to consist of semi-domestic tournaments, he was instead extended an invitation to the 2020 Skate America.
- In preparation for the 2022 World Championships, Malinin competed in the International Challenge Cup in order to get the necessary minimum scores in each of the technical categories. He was victorious in this endeavor, and as a result, he was awarded the gold medal.
- Due to the absence of Nathan Chen and Yuzuru Hanyu, in addition to the International Skating Union’s ban on all Russian athletes because of their country’s invasion of Ukraine, the men’s field at the World Championships in Montpellier was significantly more open than usual.
- Malinin was the favorite to win the gold medal at the 2023 U.S. Championships, and despite having a rough season in the short program, she skated a flawless performance to place first in that event, besting Jason Brown by 10.11 points.
- Malinin made his debut participation in an international competition during the 2023 CS Autumn Classic International and came away with the gold medal.
- He was asked to compete as part of Team North America at the Japan Open, and he ended up winning the men’s competition, while the team as a whole ended up finishing in second place overall.
