Kostiantyn Ilin (Ukrainian: Костянтин Ільїн; born 26 March 1975)[2] is a leading Ukrainian strongman competitor and entrant to the World's Strongest Man.


Born in Chernivtsi, Ukraine, Ilin took to strongman competition relatively late at the age of 30. Within four years, he was his country's national champion, winning the 2009 Ukraine's Strongest Man contest.

In 2009, he continued to impress and was invited to the 2009 World's Strongest Man in a field described as the best ever. He did not make the final in a group whose top two were Derek Poundstone and Louis-Philippe Jean.

Ilin qualified for the 2010 World's Strongest Man but was again unable to qualify for the finals.

Ilin broke Derek Poundstone's world record in the 95 kg (209 lb) circus dumbbell with 10 repetitions during the Strongman Champions League event in Kiev, Ukraine on 18 December 2010.[3]
