During that time he won nine Olympic medals, 10 World Championships medals and 14 European Championships medals. His first international tournament was the 1956 Olympics, where he won four medals, including his only Olympic gold, won in the team event. At the 1960 Olympics he added three more medals and at the 1964 Olympics two more. During his career, Titov competed at two World Championships, winning two titles at each, the vault and team event title at the 1958 World Championships and the individual all-around and rings title at the 1962 World Championships. To his four World Championships golds, he added four bronzes at the 1958 Worlds and one silver at the 1962 Worlds. At the European Championships, Titov won eight titles, one in 1957 (vault), five in 1959 (individual all-around, vault, parallel bars, rings, pommelled horse) and two in 1961 (rings, horizontal bar).
