He is the 2015 European Youth Olympic champion, 2014 NRW Trophy silver medalist, and a two-time Ukrainian national champion. He has qualified for the free skate at six ISU Championships.


Pavlov began skating in 2003.[1]

2012–2013 season[edit]

In the 2012–2013 season, Pavlov debuted on the ISU Junior Grand Prix (JGP) series. He placed eighth at his JGP assignments in France and Turkey and then won junior titles at the Bavarian Open and Ukrainian Junior Championships. He was sent to the 2013 World Junior Championships, where he qualified for the free skate and finished 20th overall.

2013–2014 season[edit]

Pavlov finished eighth and seventh respectively at his JGP assignments in Slovakia and Estonia. After taking the junior silver medal at the 2013 Cup of Nice, he became the Ukrainian national senior bronze medalist. Pavlov was assigned to his second World Junior Championships.[2] He ranked 16th in both segments and finished 15th overall.

2014–2015 season[edit]

During the 2014 JGP series, Pavlov placed seventh in Tallinn, Estonia and fifth in Zagreb, Croatia. Making his senior international debut, he won the silver medal at the NRW Trophy in late November 2014. At the Ukrainian Championships, he ranked first in the short program and second in the free skate, finishing second to Yaroslav Paniot by less than half a point.[3] In January 2015, Pavlov won gold at the European Youth Olympic Winter Festival in Dornbirn, Austria. In March, he came in 16th at the 2015 World Junior Championships in Tallinn, having placed 21st in the short and 15th in the free.

Starting his season on the JGP series, Pavlov finished 8th in Bratislava, Slovakia before winning a bronze medal in Linz, Austria. He then appeared on the senior level, placing 7th at the International Cup of Nice and 5th at his first ISU Challenger Series (CS) event, the 2015 Tallinn Trophy. In December 2015, he placed first in both segments at the Ukrainian Championships and outscored Paniot for the gold medal by 7.42 points.

Pavlov made his senior ISU Championship debut in January 2016 at the European Championships in Bratislava, Slovakia. He qualified for the final segment by placing 13th in the short program and then placed 15th in the free, resulting in a final placement of 15th.
