Biography[edit]

Kolobkov was born on 22 September 1969 in Moscow.[1] In his career he won 26 medals between Olympic Games, World and European Championships.[4] He was appointed as a Deputy Minister of Sport, Tourism and Youth Policy on 8 October 2010 by then Prime Minister Vladimir Putin.[5] He was appointed as the head of the Russian delegation for 2012 Summer Olympics in London on 9 August 2011.[6] On 18 June 2012, he was appointed as the Deputy Minister of Sports.[1]

He also served as Russia's representative to World Anti-Doping Agency. His last meeting with the organization was on 18 November 2015 when it declared Russian Anti-Doping Agency as non-compliant. As a result, he lost his position as representative to the organization in January 2016 and was barred from serving on the organization's Foundation Board.[7][8]

On 19 October, he was appointed as the Minister of Sport in place of the previous minister Vitaly Mutko by President Putin.[9]
