Hollywood Gold's: Vladimir Sizov

You may have seen Vladimir Sizov on NBC's summer celeb-reality series Celebrity Circus, where he starred as one of the circus trainers and performance partners to the "stars."

Born in Moscow, Sizov became involved in gymnastics at seven years old. In 1988 he won first place at the USSR gymnastic championship in the team competition. A couple of years later, when he turned 20, Sizov ran away to join the circus (the Moscow Circus) and performed on the high bar for the next five years.

In 1995 he moved to Las Vegas to perform in Mystere one of the Vegas Cirque Du Soleil shows, and again spent the next five years flying through the air during his high bar trapeze act.

Since leaving the circus Sizov the 5'9" 39 year old has competed as a heavyweight bodybuilder at the Junior Nationals, Nationals and USAs. Last July he earned 2nd at the Los Angeles Championships, and then the following week placed 4th in his class at the 2009 NPC USA Championships weighing 217lbs.

Sizov was one of the supporting cast members at The 2008 Tour of Gymnastics Superstars and is another one of those NorthAmericanBodies boys.

And he looks MASSIVE in person!
