Pavel LEDNEV

Although Soviet Pavel Lednyov never won the Olympic individual modern pentathlon title, he won a record seven medals in the sport. In the team event, he took gold in 1972 and 1980 and silver in 1976 and in the individual event he won silver in 1976 and bronze in 1968, 1972 and 1980. In contrast to his Olympic record, he was the individual winner at the World Championships four times (1973, 1974, 1975, 1978) and was twice a member of the winning team (1973, 1974). He was Soviet national champion in 1968 and 1973. After his sporting career, Lednyov was the head coach of the Soviet national modern pentathlon team from 1981-87 and later worked with the Russian Modern Pentathlon Federation, serving as vice-president.
