Pereteyko made sporting headlines at the 2002 Asian Games in Busan, South Korea, where he overpowered China's Teng Guangying with a brilliant ippon victory to grab the bronze medal in the 90-kg division.

At the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens, Pereteyko qualified for the Uzbek squad in the men's middleweight class (90 kg), by placing second and receiving a berth from the Asian Championships in Almaty, Kazakhstan.[2] By the mighty commotion of the home crowd inside Ano Liossia Hall to favor their opponent Dionysios Iliadis, Pereteyko failed to apply pressure on his opponent, and thereby lost his opening match by an ippon and a kouchi gari (small inner reap) within two minutes.[3][4][5]
