Dmitriy Vyacheslavovich Klokov (Russian: Дмитрий Вячеславович Клоков; born February 18, 1983) is a former Russian Olympic weightlifter, Olympian, and World Champion. He competed in the 105 kg category.
Klokov became world champion at the 2005 World Championships, with a total of 419 kg. He also participated at the 2005 and 2006 Arnold Sports Festivals in Columbus, Ohio. At the 2006 World Championships and 2007 World Championships he ranked 3rd.
Klokov won the silver medal at the 2008 Summer Olympics, with a total of 423 kg. He won the silver medal at the 2011 World Weightlifting Championships, with a 196 kg snatch, 232 kg clean and jerk for a total of 428 kg at a body weight of 104.6 kg. He lost to a fellow Russian, Khadzhimurat Akkayev by 2 kilos (on the snatch). Klokov was scheduled to compete at the 2012 Summer Olympics in the 105 kg class but was forced to withdraw due to undisclosed medical reasons.
In June of 2018 and early December 2018, tentative news reports circulated that Klokov attempted to insinuate himself into the controversial project of Donald Trump building a Trump Tower in Moscow through outreach to Michael Cohen and Ivanka Trump.
Klokov and his wife, Elena, have a daughter named Anastasia.
