Igor Trandenkov was one of the top pole vaulters of the world in the early 1990s, rising to prominence when he won the 1985 European Junior Championships. He won the 1994 Goodwill Games and 1995 European Cup, adding silvers at the 1992 and 1996 Olympics and 1994 Europeans, and bronzes at the 1993 World Championships and 1994 European Indoors.
