Ilya Ilyin four-time world champion, current author of several world records for lifting heavyweights. Multiple winners of the title "Best Athlete of the Year".
I've been practicing sports since I was a kid. At the age of 13, he won a prize in the local junior championship. Since then, he has been steadily developing in this direction. In 2005, he took first place in the world tournament held in Doha. A few months later, he took gold again in Santo Domingo.
After an enchanting success, he went into the shadows for five years, limiting himself to local achievements. In 2010, at the Asian Games, he outperformed his competitors in lifting the barbell, and then at the competitions in Paris, he also rose to the top of the podium. The last event can be considered a victory in Almaty, during performances in the weight category up to 105 kg.
In 2016, there was a scandal during which he was recognized for doping. The results of the examination proved to be positive.
