Vladimir Sergeyevich Antoshin was born in Moscow. He was awarded the IM title in 1963 and the GM title in 1964. As a young man Vladimir was a high achiever, principally as part of the USSR's highly successful Student Olympiad team of 1954-56. The team won the silver medal at the first ever Student Olympiad in Oslo 1954 and then took gold medals at Lyons 1955 and at Uppsala 1956.(1) He also won 1st prize at the International tournament at Zinnowitz in 1966, scoring +8 =6 -1, taking first place ahead of Wolfgang Uhlmann.
Antoshin became a tournament organiser and trainer to the USSR Olympiad team, maintained a second career as a technical designer, and (according to Mark Taimanov) had strong links with the KGB.(2)
Antoshin chose to play correspondence chess throughout the 1950s, culminating in his winning the USSR Correspondence Championship of 1960. He was a noted opening theorist and has opening variations in the Philidor and Dutch named after him.

|Sep-12-04|| ||Chessical: Vladimir Antoshin,International Chess Grandmaster (1964), made siginificant contributions to the theory of the Dutch. 10th 22nd USSR championship 1955, 7th 35th USSR Open Championship 1967. |
|May-21-07|| ||Themofro: Creator of the Antoshin variation of the Bird's Opening, early c3, d3, aiming for Qc2 to back up the e4 push. There has sadly been a varation found that gives black solid equality in it, so not as daring as some other Bird's Opening lines. Still, almost know one knows the black line in it, and it is a fine shock weapon, even if someone is prepared for you playing the Bird's, they WON'T be for you playing the Antoshin. Overall a fine contribution to chess made by this similarly excellent GM.|
