More about VIHROVS Igors:

One of the most unexpected Olympic Champions in Sydney 2000, Igor won the gold medal on Floor, as if out of the blue for the audience, but not so surprisingly for those who have watched him adding more and more difficulty to his Floor routine, during the 2000 pre-Olympic season.

Funny as it may seem, he never managed to repeat his fluent Olympic performance since Sydney. At the World Championships in Ghent November 2001, he added a Bronze medal to his collection, giving way to Jordan Jovtchev (BUL) and Marian Dragulescu (ROM), World Champions in a tie. One of the reasons for this was that Vihrov went overtime (penalty 0.20), because he has not heard the 10-second warning signal!

However, a month later, in December 2001 at the Glasgow Grand Prix and World Cup competition in Kelvin Hall, Vihrov won his best event ahead of his team-mate Evgeni Sapronenko and Jordan Jovtchev (BUL) in a tie for silver.
