Personal lifeEdit

Galliamov was born on 28 August 1999 in Berezniki, Russia.[1]

CareerEdit

Early yearsEdit

Galliamov began learning to skate in 2005.[2] He was a single skater until 2014, when he switched to pair skating and moved to Saint Petersburg. He and his first partner, Alexandra Polishchuk, skated together through the 2015–2016 season. He competed with his next partner, Nika Osipova, during the 2016–2017 season.[3]

2017–2018 season: Partnership with MishinaEdit

Galliamov teamed up with Anastasia Mishina in February 2017.[4] Coached by Nikolai Velikov and Ludmila Velikova, the pair won the junior title at the 2017 Golden Spin of Zagreb, their first international event.[5]

Mishina/Galliamov placed seventh at the 2018 Russian Championships and took silver at the junior event. In March 2018, they won bronze at the 2018 World Junior Championships in Sofia, Bulgaria. They were part of a Russian sweep of the pairs' podium, along with their training partners Polina Kostiukovich / Dmitrii Ialin (silver) and Daria Pavliuchenko / Denis Khodykin (gold).

2018–2019 season: Junior World titleEdit

Mishina/Galliamov started their season by competing in the 2018 JGP series. At their first JGP event of the season they won the gold medal in Bratislava, Slovakia. They were ranked first in both the short program and the free skate and won the gold medal by a margin of more than 11 points over the silver medalists, their teammates Apollinariia Panfilova / Dmitry Rylov.[6] At their second JGP event of the season they won another gold medal, now in Vancouver, Canada. Again they were ranked first in both the short program and the free skate, and again they beat the same silver medalists, Panfilova/Rylov. This time they beat them by about 10 points.[7] Mishina/Galliamov also upgraded their earlier short program, free skate and combined total record scores. With two JGP gold medals they qualified for the 2018–19 Junior Grand Prix Final.

Mishina/Galliamov made their international senior debut at the 2018 CS Alpen Trophy where they won the gold medal with a personal best score of 192.75 points.

At the JGP Final Mishina/Galliamov won the gold medal after placing third in the short program and first in the free skate. They were part of a Russian sweep of the pairs' podium. Mishina/Galliamov beat the bronze medalists, Panfilova/Rylov, by about 4 points but the race for the gold medal was tight. Mishina/Galliamov won the gold medal by a margin of only 1.1 point over the silver medalists, their training partners Kostiukovich/Ialin. At this event Mishina/Galliamov also upgraded their junior-level pairs' record for the combined total (190.63 points) and free program (126.26 points).[4]

At the 2019 Russian Championships, they competed as seniors domestically, placing fourth in the short program with upgraded jump and throw content.[8] They slipped to fifth place overall after placing fifth in the free skate when Mishina fell on the side-by-side combination jump attempt.[9] Mishina/Galliamov subsequently won the Russian junior national title.

Assigned to the 2019 World Junior Championships, Mishina/Galliamov placed third in the short program after Galliamov struggled on their side-by-side spin.[10] They won the free skate, despite another fall by Mishina on the jump combination, and narrowly took gold over Panfilova/Rylov by a margin of 0.57 points. Galliamov said that being third after the short program had motivate them to perform better in the free.[11]

2019–2020 seasonEdit

Mishina/Galliamov began their first full senior season on the Challenger series, competing and winning at the 2019 CS Finlandia Trophy after placing first in both segments.[12]

Making their senior Grand Prix debut at the 2019 Internationaux de France, Mishina/Galliamov were second in the short program behind Daria Pavliuchenko / Denis Khodykin.[13] They won the free skate to take the gold medal, despite Mishina botching their planned three-jump combination.[14] At their second Grand Prix, the 2019 NHK Trophy, they placed third in the short program after a jump problem from Galliamov.[15] They were clean in the free skate, winning the bronze medal and qualifying for the Grand Prix Final.[16] Competing at the Final, Mishina/Galliamov were fourth in the short program, skating cleanly but for their side-by-side spins not receiving a level due to errors.[17] Third in the free skate, they won the bronze medal overall, the highest-ranked Russian team in the competition.[18]

Mishina/Galliamov ran into trouble in the short program at the 2020 Russian Championships, with Mishina falling on their throw triple flip, stumbling in the step sequence, and exiting the pair spin too early. Consequently, they placed eighth in the segment.[19] The free skate proved much more successful, with them placing third, and rising to fourth place overall. She observed "we were not in a good mood, but we were able to recover."[20]

2020–2021 seasonEdit

In the spring of 2020, Mishina/Galliamov moved to the Tamara Moskvina Figure Skating Club. Their main coach Tamara Moskvina, choreographer Alexander Stepin[21]
