Valeriy Vasylovych Dvoynikov (Ukrainian: Валерій Васильович Двойников, born 4 May 1950 in Ozersk) is a Ukrainian judoka who competed for the Soviet Union in the 1976 Summer Olympics.[1]

In 1976 he won the silver medal in the middleweight.

He was also vice world champion in Vienna (1975) and 4 times European champion.

Isao Inokuma said that "Among the foreign judoists with brilliant shin-gi-tai (spirit, skill, and power) are the Soviet Union's Nevzorov, the victor in the light-middleweight class in the Montreal Olympics, Dvoinikov of the Soviet Union, who was runner-up in the middleweight division at the same Olympics, and Lorentz of East Germany, who won the 95-kilograms-and-under class in the Jigoro Kano Cup International Judo Tournament held in Tokyo in 1978".[2]
