Olga Sergeyevna Zabelinskaya (also transliterated Zabelinskaia; Russian: Ольга Серге́евна Забелинская; born 10 May 1980 in Leningrad) is a Russian professional racing cyclist. She qualified for the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, where she won bronze medals in both the road race and the time trial.[3][4] Subsequently, she won a silver medal in the time trial at the 2016 Olympics. She is the first Russian female cyclist to win two Olympic medals in road events.

In 1997, she twice became the junior world champion, in road and track individual races. She missed the 2004 Olympics because she was having a baby. In 2006, Zabelinskaya quit competitive cycling, but returned in 2009.[5]


In July 2014 it was reported that Zabelinskaya had tested positive for octopamine at an international race in the spring.[6] In February 2016, she accepted an 18-month ban, which she already served and which expired in September 2015.[7]

Personal life[edit]

Zabelinskaya is the daughter of the Olympic champion former cyclist Sergei Sukhoruchenkov. She was separated from her father and they first met when Zabelinskaya was 16.[8] She has two children.[9] As of August 2012, she spends winters in Cyprus, where she trains, and summers in Saint Petersburg.[8]
