Roman Alexandrovich Repilov (Russian: Роман Александрович Репилов; born 5 March 1996) is a Russian luger.

Competitive career[edit]

Representing Russia at the 2015-16 Luge World Cup, Repilov placed second in the sprint event in Calgary with a time of 30.279.[1] On December 2, 2016, he came in fifth in the Lake Placid event of the Men's Singles 2016-17 Luge World Cup, but set a new Lake Placid track start record of 6.359 seconds.[2] Then later in the same season he triumphed in the men's singles event at Park City, Utah, came in second twice, in Winterberg, Germany and Sigulda, Latvia and won two men's singles sprint events in Park City and Sigulda.

During the 2017-18 Luge World Cup season Repilov triumphed at Lake Placid and in doing so shattered the track record which had just been set first by his teammate Semen Pavlichenko the previous day and then again by the American slider Tucker West in the previous heat of the finals, with a time of 50.875 seconds. Repilov was joined on the podium by Pavlichenko, who took the silver, and West, who took home the bronze.[3][4] Also during the 2017–18 campaign he has won a silver at Altenberg[5] and a bronze at Calgary.[6]

Repilov currently resides in Dmitrov.[7]
