TARASOV Maksim (1971) Russia / Track and field
Taking advantage of the great Ukrainian athlete Serguei Bubka's chronic poor Olympic form, the Russian pole vaulter Maksim Tarasov took the gold medal at the Barcelona games in 1992.He did not have to strain his talent, of which he gave a preview during the preceding world championships, to clear the 5.80 needed for the gold medal. It would have been nice to see Tarasov win again in Sydney so as to see his ritual perilous backward somersault, yet, in hardly inspired form, he had to settle for a bronze medal behind two little known Americans: Hysong and Johnson.
