Mikhail Kolyada RUS
2018 Cup of China short program
We have known for a couple seasons now that when Mikhail Kolyada is on, he is absolutely one of the best. Nowhere was it more apparent last season than with this short program at Cup of China.
Of course, the most memorable part of this program was his quad lutz - which, when it’s done the way it was here, is absolutely the smoothest, easiest of anyone’s in the world. Plus, this short program showcased Kolyada’s light, nonchalant style - the packaging fit him incredibly well. And with the rest of the program clean, it was easily his best showing all season.
And let’s not forget - this program reminds us that Kolyada loves a tango, even when Mozart is around.
