Additional information
General
NAMED ELEMENT
He credits the COVID-19 lockdown in 2020 for encouraging him to learn a triple salto backward piked on floor exercise, which he debuted at the 2021 European Championships in Basel, Switzerland. The skill was subsequently named 'the Nagornyy' by the International Gymnastics Federation [FIG] and awarded an "I" element value. "It was my dream, one of the few in sports. Who suggested that I do this triple somersault? The coronavirus is to blame for everything. Being in a long quarantine, I got the idea to do such a somersault. The first time I tried it on a trampoline, and I kept in my head the idea that it is possible to do it on the floor in competitions. The story is not as beautiful as it might seem, but a dream come true, a personalised element." (FIG Facebook page, 03 May 2021; championat.com, 25 Apr 2021).

CHAMPIONS ACADEMY
In 2018 he founded Champions Academy gymnastics school for children and adults in Putilkovo, close to Moscow, Russian Federation. "It's a commercial enterprise. I want to earn in order to be able to create gyms in [Russian] regions. Maybe, some time later, like-minded people will appear with whom we will join our efforts. My dream is to help the development of gymnastics in the regions. There are a lot of schools in Moscow but people from other places write to me that they would like to do gymnastics but it's not possible anywhere. I would like to give an opportunity to such people to try to practise our sport. And let the children, who are still deciding on which sport to do, make a choice in favour of gymnastics." (teamrussia.pro, 24 Apr 2019; Instagram profile, 30 Sep 2018)

YOUTH ARMY CHIEF
In December 2020 he was appointed to the post of chief of the headquarters of Yunarmia [Youth Army], an All-Russian youth movement involving 700,000 young people and with branches in every region on the country. (rostovgazata.ru, 20 Dec 2020; avangard.center, 28 Apr 2021)
