Alexander Vladimirovich Denisyev (Russian: Александр Владимирович Денисьев, born 27 January 1991) is a Russian luger who qualified to represent Russia in the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi. Denisyev, together with Vladislav Antonov, participated in doubles and in team relay competitions.[1] Denisyev and Antonov came fifth in the doubles, and, together with Tatiana Ivanova and Albert Demchenko, they won the silver medal in the team relay.[2] Denisyev was later stripped of that medal, after Albert Demchenko and Tatiana Ivanova were banned for doping violations on December 22, 2017, and the results of the Russian team were annulled.[3] On 1 February 2018, their results were restored as a result of the successful appeal.[4]
