Ivan Righini, previously Ivan Vadimovich Bariev (Russian: Иван Вадимович Бариев, born 16 April 1991) is a figure skater who currently represents Italy. Righini is the 2014 Bavarian Open champion and 2014 Italian national champion. Earlier in his career, he competed for Russia as Ivan Bariev.

Personal life[edit]

In 2013, Bariev adopted his mother's former surname, Righini.[1] In addition to Russian, he also holds Italian citizenship.[2]


Early career[edit]

In late October 2007, Bariev underwent surgery on the meniscus in his right knee.[3] He finished seventh at the 2008 World Junior Championships and earned four silver medals on the ISU Junior Grand Prix series. Bariev's first senior international medal, bronze, came at the 2011 Golden Spin of Zagreb. He made his final competitive appearances for Russia in autumn 2012.


In 2013, Righini stated his intention to compete for Italy.[2] He received the Russian federation's permission in May 2013.[4] The International Skating Union requires that skaters who change federations sit out a certain period of time. For Righini, this period ended on 29 October 2013.[5]

Righini debuted for Italy at the 2013 Merano Cup, placing fifth, and then won bronze at the 2013 Golden Spin of Zagreb. After winning the men's title at the 2014 Italian Championships, he took gold at the 2014 Bavarian Open. Righini was selected for the 2014 World Championships in Saitama, Japan. Placing 14th in the short program, he qualified for the free skate, in which he placed 12th, and finished 13th overall.

Righini made his Grand Prix debut in the 2014–15 season. He received assignments to the 2014 Rostelecom Cup and 2014 NHK Trophy.[6]
