Zabolotnaya competed in the women's 75 kg weight class at the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens and won the silver medal, lifting 272.5 kg in total. The result qualified as a world record, but it was also achieved by Pawina Thongsuk, who won the competition. Zabolotnaya won a gold medal in the 75 kg weightclass at the 2010 European Championship.
She originally was awarded the silver medal at the 2012 Summer Olympics in the women's 75 kg category with a total of 291 kg. This result was an Olympic record, which was also achieved by Svetlana Podobedova who was awarded a medal the competition by virtue of lighter bodyweight, though Podobedova's medal was also subsequently stripped of her medal due to doping. Zabolotnaya's 131 kg snatch was a (later nullified due to doping-related cheating) Olympic record.
In November 2016, Zabolotnaya was stripped of her 2012 Olympic medal after her drug sample tested positive.
