Kutsenko served as the Soviet flag bearer at the 1952 Summer Olympics.
Between 1946 and 1950 he won two European titles and two silver medals at world championships, both times losing to John Davis. He was the Soviet heavyweight champion between 1937 and 1952, and in 1947 set three official world records in the clean and jerk. He was not allowed to compete because the Soviet officials expected the flag bearer to win a gold medal, and Kutsenko never won a world title.
