He also won European titles in the 200 metres (1999) and 500 metres (1999, 2001). In 2008, having become one of Russians national team coaches, he died during a training session. His motor boat suddenly capsized, and Tissin did not surface again. His body was not found, in spite of extensive searches of the reservoir.
