Ilya Aleksandrovich Ilyin (Russian: Ильин Илья Александрович; born 24 May 1988) is a Kazakh weightlifter of Russian descent. Ilyin has won two Olympic championships and three world championships. He is currently the world and Olympic record holder in both the clean and jerk (233 kg) and the overall total (418 kg) in the 94 kg class. He is Kazakhstan's first two-time Olympic champion.

Athletic career[edit]

Ilyin became Kazakhstan's first junior and senior weightlifting world champion when he placed first overall in the men's 85 kg class at the 2005 World Weightlifting Championships. He snatched 170 kg and clean and jerked 216 kg (for which he also won the clean and jerk phase) for a total of 386 kg. His clean and jerk of 216 and total of 386 are the current junior world records in the 85 kg class.

The next year Ilyin competed in the men's 94 kg class at the 2006 World Weightlifting Championships and won the gold medal in the overall. He snatched 175 kg and clean and jerked 217 kg for a total of 392 kg. With his final two lifts in the clean and jerk phase he attempted to set a world record with 233 kg but was unsuccessful.

Ilyin competed in the men's 94 kg class at the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing and won the gold medal, snatching 180 kg and clean and jerking 226 kg for a total of 406 kg.[1]

In 2011, Ilyin competed in the men's 94 kg class at the world championships and once again won the gold medal in both the clean and jerk and the overall. He snatched 181 kg and clean and jerked 226 kg for a total of 407 kg.

Ilyin won the gold medal at the 2012 Summer Olympics in the men's 94 kg category with a world and Olympic record total of 418 kg. He was successful in all three snatch attempts with lifts of 177 kg, 182 kg, and 185 kg. He was also successful in all three clean and jerk attempts with lifts of 224 kg, 228 kg, and 233 kg. His final lift of 233 kg is now the current world and Olympic record in the clean and jerk. As a result of this performance, Ilyin became the first Kazakhstani in history to win two Olympic gold medals.

On November 8, 2012 Ilin was awarded the Olympic Council of Asia award as the best Asian athlete, along with Zulfiya Chinshanlo and Olga Rypakova.

He is a member of the Astana Presidential Sports Club.[2]
