Olga Sergeyevna Zabelinskaya (also transliterated Zabelinskaia; Russian: Ольга Серге́евна Забелинская; born 10 May 1980) is a Russian-born Uzbekistani professional racing cyclist, who currently rides for UCI Women's Continental Team Cogeas–Mettler–Look.[5] While competing for Russia, she won three Olympic medals, before changing allegiances to Uzbekistan in 2018.[6]

Career[edit]

Born in Leningrad (now Saint Petersburg), Zabelinskaya twice became the junior world champion in 1997, 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.[7]

She qualified for the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, where she won bronze medals in both the road race and the time trial.[8][9] 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.

Doping[edit]

In July 2014 it was reported that Zabelinskaya had tested positive for octopamine at an international race in the spring.[10] In February 2016, she accepted an 18-month ban, which she already served and which expired in September 2015.[11]

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.[12] She has three children.[13] As of August 2012, she spends winters in Cyprus, where she trains, and summers in Saint Petersburg.[12]
