Emil Nekola (Japanese: エミル・ネコラ, Emiru Nekora) is a Czech figure skater featured in Yuri!!! on Ice.


Emil competed at the World Championship in Yoyogi during the previous season. He placed third at Skate Canada International in the current season.


EN Chara

Emil is a tall young man with an athletic build. He has messy light brown hair, blue eyes, stubble, and a short beard. 

Short Program

During his short program, Emil wears a dark costume with a black vest, gray, puffy sleeves, and a black cravat. 

Free Skate

During his free skate, Emil wears a blue one-piece costume with silver, geometric decorations, and a wide blue belt. 


Emil is kind, straightforward, honest, and a true gentleman. He has a protege-like temperament, so he is easily ordered around, usually by Michele. Emil is very sociable, often asking Sara and sometimes Michele to go out for dinner or drinks with him. He is the only one who returns Yuuri's hug during Yuuri's brief hugging spree after the Rostelecom Cup free program.



Emil has a great jumping ability and is the only skater other than Seung-gil Lee and Jean-Jacques Leroy to land a quad loop in competition.[1] However, he tends to run out of stamina after pulling them off.[2]


Michele Crispino

Michele is rather wary of Emil trying to get together with Sara, but the two are good friends. Emil is the only other person besides Sara who refers to Michele as Mickey. They sit together in the audience during the Barcelona GPF.[3] It's been confirmed that they have each other's contact information.[4]

Sara Crispino

Given his friendship with the elder Crispino twin, Emil also gets along with Sara. He often tries to ask her to go out for dinner or drinks with him, but Michele always turns these offers down, in the belief he is protecting his sister.
