Vladimir Alekseevich Kanaykin (Russian: Владимир Алексеевич Канайкин; born 21 March 1985) is a Russian race walker.


On August 5, 2008, Kanaykin and training partners Sergey Morozov, Viktor Burayev, and Aleksey Voyevodin, all coached by Viktor Chegin were banned from competition, following a positive EPO test. The positive tests were conducted in April 2008[1] and evidenced doping. He took the silver in men's 20km race walk in 1:20:27 at the 2011 World Championships in Athletics in Daegu.[2]


On 20 January 2015, Kanaykin was disqualified for life starting from 17 December 2012, and all his results between 25 January 2011 and 25 March 2011, as well as between 16 June 2011 and 27 September 2011 were annulled.[3] On March 25, 2015, the IAAF filed an appeal with the Court of Arbitration in Lausanne, Switzerland, questioning the selective disqualification of the suspension periods of the six athletes involved including Kanaykin.[4]
