Denis Sergeyevich Strelkov (Russian: Денис Сергеевич Стрелков; born 26 October 1990) is a race walker. He won the bronze medal in the 20-kilometre walk at the 2014 European Championships in Athletics. He continues to be coached by Viktor Chegin, after he has been suspended for a lengthy series of performance-enhancing drug suspensions against many of his athletes.

Doping case[edit]

In September 2015 IAAF confirmed that Strelkov was provisionally suspended after a sample from an out-of-competition control in Saransk in June had been found positive for a prohibited substance.[1]
