He repeated his performance at the 1980 Summer Olympics, where he again won gold medals in both events.[3][4]

Krovopuskov was world champion in individual sabre twice (1978 and 1982), and team sabre five times (1974, 1975, 1979, 1983, and 1985). He also won the World Cup in sabre twice (1976 and 1979). In 1979 he was named the Best Sabre Fencer of the World by the International Fencing Federation.[1]
