Initially a long-jumper, he switched to the triple jump in 1967 and in 1968 won the Olympic gold medal with an extraordinary world record of 17.39m. (the world record from Józef Szmidt dating from 1960 was bettered five times in Mexico City, twice by Saneev)
He won the European title in 1969 and though he lost it to Jörg Drehmel (GDR) in 1971, he retained his Olympic title in 1972. Later that year he regained the world record he had lost to Pedro Perez with an effort of 17.44m. In 1975, a new World record (17.89 m) was set by the Brazilian de Oliveira (at the Montreal Olympic stadium) and nobody believed Saneev could claim a third title, but he did. He added a silver in 1980.
He had high-jumped 1.90m when aged seventeen.
