Biography

Ukrainian Viktor Tsybulenko was the top Soviet javelin thrower of the 1950s, winning the Soviet title five times – 1952, 1955-57 and 1959. Tsybulenko competed at three Olympic Games, winning gold in 1960, bronze in 1956 and placing fourth in 1952. He also competed at two European Championships, winning silver in 1962, and finishing fourth in 1954. Tsybulenko ranked in the world top 10 every year from 1952-62, save for 1955, but was never ranked #1, his best placement being second in 1962 and third in 1960.

After finishing his sporting career, Tsybulenko made his career in the Soviet Army, retiring from the force in 1985 with a rank of colonel. After his retirement, Tsybulenko again took up javelin throwing and won the 1994 World Masters Championships in M64 class.
