Career Highlights: Russia's best hope for success on the Richmond Olympic Oval. The 27-year old is getting better with age and is reaching his
peak now that he trains with Enrico Fabris in an international team. His best chances are over the long distances, and he
is getting better as the season goes on. He had top three finishes in his last three World Cup long distance outings and added
bronze at the Hamar European all-round championships.
