World championships

Artemov won a gold medal in parallel bars at the 1983 World Artistic Gymnastics Championships in Budapest, and again at the 1987 World Artistic Gymnastics Championships in Rotterdam. He has received five silver medals and two bronze medals at the World Gymnastics Championships. He participated on the Soviet teams which won the team final in 1985, 1987 and 1989, and finished second in 1983.


Artemov was listed among the USSR top ten athletes of the year in 1988.

After the Olympics

Artemov immigrated to the United States in 1990, settling in Pennsylvania. However, he has mistakenly been identified as the father of current US gymnast Alexander (Sasha) Artemev. The two men are not related. Artemov currently lives in San Antonio, TX where he runs a gym with his wife Natalia.[2]
