Denys Sergiyovich Yurchenko (Ukrainian: Денис Сергійович Юрченко) (born 27 January 1978 in Donetsk) is a Ukrainian pole vaulter with three medals in Indoor Athletics Championships.

Career[edit]

At the 2000 Summer Olympics he suffered a mishap with a vaulting pole, injuring his groin and ending his season. He also initially won the bronze medal in the men’s pole vault event at the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing.[1]

On 17 November 2016, the IOC disqualified him from the 2008 Olympic Games, stripped his Olympic bronze medal and struck his results from the record for failing a drugs test in a re-analysis of his doping sample from 2008.[2]

In May 2017, he was disqualified for two years.[3]

His personal best jump (outdoor) is 5.83 metres, achieved in July 2008 in Kyiv.
