Aleksandr Romanovich Galliamov (Russian: Александр Романович Галлямов, born 28 August 1999) is a Russian pair skater. With his skating partner, Anastasia Mishina, he is the 2019 World Junior champion, the 2018 World Junior bronze medalist, 2018–19 Junior Grand Prix Final champion, and 2019 Russian national junior champion.

Personal life[edit]

Galliamov was born on 28 August 1999 in Berezniki, Russia.[1]

Career[edit]

Early years[edit]

Galliamov began learning to skate in 2005.[2] He was a single skater until 2014, when he switched to pair skating and moved to Saint Petersburg. He and his first partner, Alexandra Polishchuk, skated together through the 2015–2016 season. He competed with his next partner, Nika Osipova, during the 2016–2017 season.[3]

2017–2018 season: Partnership with Mishina[edit]

Galliamov teamed up with Anastasia Mishina in February 2017.[4] Coached by Nikolai Velikov and Ludmila Velikova, the pair won the junior title at the 2017 Golden Spin of Zagreb, their first international event.[5]

Mishina/Galliamov placed seventh at the 2018 Russian Championships and took silver at the junior event. In March 2018, they won bronze at the 2018 World Junior Championships in Sofia, Bulgaria. They were part of a Russian sweep of the pairs' podium, along with their training partners Polina Kostiukovich / Dmitrii Ialin (silver) and Daria Pavliuchenko / Denis Khodykin (gold).

2018–2019 season: Junior World title[edit]

Mishina/Galliamov started their season by competing in the 2018 JGP series. At their first JGP event of the season they won the gold medal in Bratislava, Slovakia. They were ranked first in both the short program and the free skate and won the gold medal by a margin of more than 11 points over the silver medalists, their teammates Apollinariia Panfilova / Dmitry Rylov.[6] At their second JGP event of the season they won another gold medal, now in Vancouver, Canada. Again they were ranked first in both the short program and the free skate, and again they beat the same silver medalists, Panfilova/Rylov. This time they beat them by about 10 points.[7] Mishina/Galliamov also upgraded their earlier short program, free skate and combined total record scores. With two JGP gold medals they qualified for the 2018–19 Junior Grand Prix Final.

Mishina/Galliamov made their international senior debut at the 2018 CS Alpen Trophy where they won the gold medal with a personal best score of 192.75 points.

At the JGP Final Mishina/Galliamov won the gold medal after placing third in the short program and first in the free skate. They were part of a Russian sweep of the pairs' podium. Mishina/Galliamov beat the bronze medalists, Panfilova/Rylov, by about 4 points but the race for the gold medal was tight. Mishina/Galliamov won the gold medal by a margin of only 1.1 point over the silver medalists, their training partners Kostiukovich/Ialin. At this event Mishina/Galliamov also upgraded their junior-level pairs' record for the combined total (190.63 points) and free program (126.26 points).[4]

At the 2019 Russian Championships, they competed as seniors domestically, placing fourth in the short program with upgraded jump and throw content.[8] They slipped to fifth place overall after placing fifth in the free skate when Mishina fell on the side-by-side combination jump attempt.[9] Mishina/Galliamov subsequently won the Russian junior national title.

Assigned to the 2019 World Junior Championships, Mishina/Galliamov placed third in the short program after Galliamov struggled on their side-by-side spin.[10] They won the free skate, despite another fall by Mishina on the jump combination, and narrowly took gold over Panfilova/Rylov by a margin of 0.57 points. Galliamov said that being third after the short program had motivate them to perform better in the free.[11]
