Beginnings in Khimki

As a child, Viktor Polupanov played ice hockey in the backyards of his residential area. At some point he decided to take part in an inspection training with the works team of the local aviation company Lavochkin and was accepted into it. There he always played as a captain as a child and as a teenager and played in the men's team when he was under 14. At the age of 14, his 5-man formation (3 strikers and 2 defenders) was sent to a sighting by Dynamo Moscow , ultimately Polupanow was accepted into the youth program of Dynamo. At Dynamo he also played on the soccer team.

As junior games at Dynamo and ZSKA

At that time, the best young players of the Soviet Union were concentrated in the sports school of CSKA Moscow , and Polupanov was delegated there. There he formed a very accurate attack line with Vladimir Wikulov and Viktor Jeremin . At the same time, he continued to play football at Dynamo, but later gave up because he was crazy about ice hockey , as he replied to Lev Yashin when he asked about the reason for this step. The trigger for this decision was the decision of Anatoly Tarasov to bring Polupanov to the men's team of CSKA and to let him play there in a row with Vladimir Wikulov and Anatoly Firsow . But he demanded that Polupanov break with the football game.

During his career he played for HK CSKA Moscow and Krylya Sowetow Moscow . In total, he scored 154 goals in 293 games in the Soviet league .


On December 5, 1965, he was in a game against Sweden for the first time for the Soviet national team on the ice. His international career was crowned with a gold medal at the 1968 Winter Olympics . For the national team, he scored 43 goals in 75 international matches.
