Yuriy Igorevich Pimenov (Russian: Юрий Игорьевич Пименов; 29 March 1958 – 19 April 2019) was a Russian rower who mostly competed in the coxless pairs, rowing with his twin brother Nikolay. Between 1978 and 1993 the brothers won a silver medal at the 1980 Olympics, as well as three gold, three silver and one bronze medal at the world championships. They finished in 6th and 15th place at the 1988 and 1992 Games, respectively, missing the 1984 Olympics due to their boycott by the Soviet Union. They went to the Friendship Games instead, dubbed the alternative Olympics, where they won gold.
