Kamila Valieva: I’m delighted that Malinin did such a combination for the first time. There were thoughts to try, but I’ll leave it for the end of the season. It’s traumatic, but very interesting.

I tried only from a waltz jump, and on ice only from a triple and only once. The coaches stopped and said that it was necessary to postpone it for a while, for the times after important competitions.

Anna Shcherbakova: It is interesting to follow him, in general they had interesting competitions. Ilia showed himself powerfully already in the short program (at the US Nationals).

What athletes sometimes post on social media is not always worth putting into the program because of the points, but it’s incredible to watch.

Alexandra Trusova: I was impressed by Malinin even before that, with other combinations – especially with a loop, I have not seen this before. I tried 4-4, but with a lutz. Too bad he jumped it ahead of me.

    Big mistake not to nominate Ilia on the olympic team. Lame explanation of “body of work”? Or was it something else? How about who would better represent US and what are the prospects on placement in first 6-10?
