Biography

The 1980 equestrian games were not a top competition, like the other Olympic Games, because almost all the top riders missed the competition due to the boycott. In the jumping competition, the Soviets were favored in both the individual and team competition. Viktor Asmayev took gold in the team event, but did not compete in individual competition. The Olympic team jumping gold was the only title of note Asmayev won during his career. After finishing his sporting career in 1984, Asmayev worked as a jumping coach with the Soviet national jumping team until 1986 and later as a jumping coach in his native Rostov-on-Don.
