Vassily Anatolyevich Solomin (Russian: Василий Анатольевич Соломин) (5 January 1953 in Perm – 28 December 1997 in Perm) was a boxer who represented the Soviet Union at the 1976 Summer Olympics in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. There, he won the bronze medal in the lightweight division (– 60 kg), after being beaten in the semifinals by Romania's eventual silver medalist Simion Cuţov.[1]

Solomin began training under Yuri Podshivalov in 1969 at Trudovye Rezervy in Perm. He won the world title (the first in Russian sport history) at the inaugural 1974 World Amateur Boxing Championships in Havana, Cuba. From 1975, he represented the Armed Forces sports society, coached by Viktor Ageev.[2]
