As it turns out, when the self-professed “quadg0d” Ilia Malinin isn’t competing he’s pretty much like every other seventeen-year-old. “I go to public school, so I gotta focus on not only on trying to be the best skater in the world, but also, trying to focus on getting good grades, trying to get a college, get a good job,” Malinin told Olympics.com about his everyday life. “In terms of hobbies, just to get my mind off of skating, on the weekends, I play some video games. I’ll probably go skateboarding because I love the skateboard and I want to try to be good at it.”

And while Malinin has certainly made a name for himself, we would be remiss not to mention his figure-skating Olympian parents Tatiana Malinina and Roman Skorniakov who paved the way before him. “It’s really nice to have them… [they’ve] helped get me the mentality of starting to try to become a good athlete,” the aspiring Olympian said. “[Most people] don’t really see Olympians every day. They’re my parents and coaches, so it’s kind of a plus because they know what you feel, how you feel and they can relate to you more. It definitely helps my progression and our connection,” he explained of their dynamic as a family of athletes

Bravo, Ilia Malinin!
