The winner of this event was the interesting Russian skater and athlete, Nikolay Kolomenkin, who competed in figure skating under the pseudonym of Nikolay Panin, presumably because sports were considered undignified by the elite in Russian society in that era. He later (1910) wrote a landmark work on the international style of figure skating, although it was never translated into English. Kolomenkin-Panin also competed in shooting at the 1912 Olympic Games, finishing 4th in a team event.
