Artur Ashotovich Danielian (Russian: Артур Ашотович Даниелян, born 17 December 2003) is a Russian figure skater. He is the 2020 European silver medalist, the 2020 Russian national silver medalist, and the 2018 World Junior silver medalist.

Personal life[edit]

Danielian was born on 17 December 2003 in Volgograd, Russia.[1] He is the youngest of three children.[2] He is of Armenian descent.[3]

Career[edit]

Early years[edit]

Danielian began learning to skate in 2008,[4] after an ice rink opened near his home in Volgograd.[2] In 2016, he moved to Moscow and joined CSKA Moscow. Marina Selitskaia and Elena Buianova became his coaches.[5]

2017–2018 season[edit]

In September 2017, Danielian competed at his first Junior Grand Prix (JGP) assignment, placing seventh in Zagreb, Croatia. In February 2018, he won the bronze medal at the 2018 Russian Junior Championships.

In March, Danielian competed at the 2018 World Junior Championships in Sofia, Bulgaria. He won the silver medal, behind teammate Alexey Erokhov, after placing eighth in the short program and second in the free skate.

2018–2019 season[edit]

Danielian started his season by competing in the 2018 JGP series. At his first JGP event of the season he placed fifth in Ljubljana, Slovenia. At his second JGP event he placed fourth in Yerevan, Armenia. Danielian next competed at the 2018 Tallinn Trophy, where he won gold medal.

Though only fifth at the 2019 Russian Junior Championships, Danielian was nevertheless sent to the 2019 World Junior Championships. This happened because junior champion Daniil Samsonov was not age-eligible to compete internationally and fourth-place finisher Erokhov subsequently withdrew. At the Junior Worlds Danielian placed ninth in the short program, fifth in the free skating and fourth overall, with a new personal best score of 220.68 points. [6]

2019–2020 season[edit]

Competing on the Junior Grand Prix, Danielian won silver medals at both JGP Russia and JGP Croatia, ending up as first alternate to the Junior Grand Prix Final. Making his senior international debut on the Challenger series at 2019 CS Golden Spin of Zagreb, he placed fourth.

Competing at the 2020 Russian Championships at the senior level for the first time, Danielian was only thirteenth in the short program, but skated a clean free program, winning that segment outright amidst rough performances from those who placed ahead in the short program. As a result, he rose to the silver medal position. Danielian's performance earned him a berth at the 2020 European Championships.[7]
