Vladimir Artyomov won his first world title in 1983, but was unable to compete in the Los Angeles Olympics because of the Soviet boycott. Over the course of the next years, he brought home six world titles (3 in the team event, 3 on the parallel bars), as well as a slew of silver and bronze prizes. His glory days came at the Seoul Olympics, winning a total of four gold medals: individual and team all-around, parallel bars and horizontal bar. His total in the all-around event (119.125 out of 120.000) was an unofficial world record. He was the second great gymnast from his hometown of Vladimir, which also produced Nikolay Andrianov.
