Vladimir Artemov, Class of 2006, International Gymnastics Hall of Fame

Born Dec. 7, 1964, in Vladimir, Soviet Union – The prestigious career of Vladimir Artemov includes a combined total of 18 world and Olympic medals—10 of them gold—from 1983 to 1989. Artemov's crowning achievement came at the 1988 Olympic Games in Seoul, Korea, where he won four gold medals (team, all-around, parallel bars and high bar) and one silver medal (floor exercise). Known for his outstanding technique on parallel bars, he won the world title on that event three times (1983, 1987, and 1989). Artemov, appropriately born in the Russian town of Vladimir, finished second in the all-around at the 1985 World Championships and 3rd in the all-around at the 1987 World Championships. Artemov is now the head coach at Brown's Gymnastics in San Antonio, Texas.
