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 Poganovsky took gold in the team event, but finished only fifth in individual competition. Besides his Olympic gold medal, Poganovsky was a seven-time Soviet champion (1974-76, 1982-85). After his sporting career, Poganovsky worked as a jumping coach, serving as the head coach of the Ukrainian national jumping team.
