Biography

Vladimir ORLOV

Vladimir Orlov was a sprinter who rarely skated distances other than 500 m, so he never competed at the World or European All-around Championships. Throughout his entire career Orlov was under the shadow of the great Soviet sprinter Yevgeny Grishin. Orlov made his only international appearance at the 1964 Winter Olympics, where he shared a silver medal in the 500 m with Grishin and Alv Gjestvang. Domestically, Orlov never won a Soviet title, but was runner-up in 1966 and third in 1962 (both in the 500).

Personal Bests: 500 – 39.9 (1964); 1500 – 2:08.7 (1964); 5000 – 8:06.0 (1963); 10000 – 17:05.0 (1966).
