Ludmila Nelidina (Russian: Людмила Нелидина; born 7 December 1984) is a Russian former competitive figure skater. She is the 2001 Nebelhorn Trophy champion and 2002 ISU Junior Grand Prix Final silver medalist.

Career[edit]

Nelidina competed for Russia until 1998, when she briefly switched to competing for Azerbaijan. She switched back to skating for Russia the following year. Her highest placement at a senior-level ISU Championship was 13th at the 2003 World Championships. During her career, she was coached by Tatiana Pomerantseva, Zhanna Gromova, and Viktor Kudriavtsev.

Nelidina landed a triple axel in competition at the 2002 Skate America. Together with Yukari Nakano, who also completed a triple axel at that competition, Nelidina was the first female skater in 10 years to perform a triple axel in international competition. She is the first European lady skater to land a triple axel in competition, the other skaters having been from Japan and the United States.[1]

After retiring from competition, Nelidina began coaching in Moscow.[2]
