Personal lifeEdit

Sergei Evgenyevich Voronov was born in 1987 in Moscow.[1] The International Skating Union gives October as his month of birth while the Russian skating federation lists November.[1][2]

CareerEdit

Early yearsEdit

Voronov began skating in 1991. He broke his collarbone two years later while skating.[3] Voronov was coached by Rafael Arutyunyan in Moscow until 2000 when Arutyunyan moved to the U.S.[4][5] Voronov decided to move to Saint Petersburg where he was coached by Galina Kashina for two years and then switched to Alexei Urmanov.[5]

2004 to 2008Edit

Voronov withdrew from the 2005 World Junior Championships after the qualifying round due to an injury which kept him off the ice for three months.[6] He had placed sixth in the qualifying round.[7]

Voronov withdrew from the 2007 Skate Canada International before the event due to a recurring foot injury.[8] He placed fourth in the free skate at the 2008 World Championships and finished 7th overall.

2009–10 seasonEdit

In the 2009–10 season, Voronov was assigned to the 2009 Cup of China, where he took bronze, and 2009 Trophée Eric Bompard, where he was sixth. He won the silver medal at the 2010 Russian national championships. Voronov was sent to Europeans but his 14th-place result led Russia to assign the country's second men's spot at the Olympics and Worlds to Russian national bronze medalist Artem Borodulin (along with Evgeni Plushenko). Plushenko's withdrawal from the 2010 World Championships due to injury allowed Voronov to be called up as a late replacement. Voronov would place 14th. This placement, along with Borodulin's withdrawal during the competition, meant Russia would have one men's berth to the 2011 World Championships. At the end of the season, he left coach Alexei Urmanov and moved back to Moscow to be coached by Nikolai Morozov.[9][10]

2010–11 seasonEdit

For the 2010–11 season, Voronov was assigned to the 2010 Cup of China and the 2010 Trophée Eric Bompard. He was injured during the short program at Cup of China and withdrew from the event and from Trophee Bompard. He competed at Russian Nationals where he placed 10th in the short program, 3rd in the long, and 4th overall, just 0.27 points off the podium.

2011–12 seasonEdit

Voronov finished 17th at the 2012 World Championships in Nice, France. He withdrew from the 2012 World Team Trophy due to an ankle fracture which he sustained in Nice.[11]

2012–13 seasonEdit

Voronov won the bronze medal at the 2012 Cup of China, his third Grand Prix medal. He finished 7th at the 2012 NHK Trophy and won the silver medal at the 2013 Russian Championships. On 4 April 2013, Morozov confirmed that Voronov had left his group.[12]

2013–14 seasonEdit

Voronov joined Eteri Tutberidze and Sergei Dudakov.[13] In the 2013–14 season, he won silver at his first event, the 2013 Finlandia Trophy, and finished ninth at his sole Grand Prix event, the 2013 NHK Trophy. After winning the gold medal at the 2013 Golden Spin of Zagreb, Voronov took bronze at the 2014 Russian Championships. Appearing in his sixth European Championships, he won the silver medal with a new Personal Best overall score of 252.55 points.

2014–15 seasonEdit

In the 2014–15 season,[14] Voronov's first assignment was the 2014 Rostelecom Cup; he won the silver medal, behind Spain's Javier Fernández. After taking silver at the 2014 NHK Trophy, he qualified to his first Grand Prix Final. At the Final, he was awarded the bronze medal behind gold medalist Yuzuru Hanyu and silver medalist Fernández.

Voronov won silver at the 2015 Russian Championships behind Maxim Kovtun and was sent to the 2015 European Championships, where he took bronze behind Fernandez (gold) and Kovtun (silver). With that, he ranked second in the ISU World Standings for men's singles with 3839 points, behind Yuzuru Hanyu.[15] Voronov competed at the 2015 World Championships in Shanghai with an aggravated knee injury.[16] He placed fourth in the short program, 17th in the long, and 13th overall.

2015–16 seasonEdit

Voronov placed fifth at the 2015 Cup of China, sixth at the 2015 Rostelecom Cup, and fifth at the 2016 Russian Championships. He received no ISU Championship assignment but was invited to the 2016 Team Challenge Cup to compete as a member of Team Europe. His team finished second to North America.

Voronov changed coaches in spring 2016, joining Inna Goncharenko.[17]

2016–17 seasonEdit

In October 2016 Voronov won the gold medal at the 2016 CS Ondrej Nepela Memorial. In his Grand Prix events, he placed 4th at the 2016 Skate America and 3rd at the 2016 Cup of China.

At the 2017 Russian Championships Voronov finished 7th.

2017–18 seasonEdit

Before his Grand Prix series events Voronov competed in two Challenger events. His first event was 2017 CS Ondrej Nepela Trophy where he won the silver medal behind his teammate Mikhail Kolyada. He then skated at the 2017 CS Minsk-Arena Ice Star where he won the gold medal.

In November 2017 Voronov won his first Grand Prix series gold medal when he won the 2017 NHK Trophy with a personal best score of 271.12 points. He then won the bronze medal at the 2017 Skate America. These results qualified him to the 2017–18 Grand Prix Final where he placed 4th after placing 5th in the short program and 5th in the free skate.

In December 2017 Voronov placed 4th at the 2018 Russian Championships after placing 4th in the short program and 3rd in the free skate.
