Early years[edit]

He placed 4th in the short program and 3rd in the free skate. In the free program he fell on a quad Lutz, but the jump was counted as fully rotated.[15] At the 2017 World Championships he placed 7th in the short program and 9th in the free skate, finishing 8th overall. At the 2017 World Team Trophy he placed 4th in the short program, and 5th in the free skate with Team Russia finishing 2nd place overall.

He was selected to skate both programs for Team Russia in the Olympic Team Figure Skating event, helping the Olympic Athletes of Russia to the Team Silver medal.

He won the bronze medal at the 2018 World Figure Skating Championships in Milan, Italy, being 2nd after the short, but dropping to 3rd after errors in the long.

Kolyada started his season by competing in two ISU Challenger Series events. In mid September he won the gold medal at the 2018 CS Ondrej Nepela Trophy and in early October he won another gold medal at the 2018 CS Finlandia Trophy.
