Biography

A Soviet Army officer from Latvia, Georgijs Kuļikovs took up swimming in 1962. He made his international début at the 1966 European Championships, where he won silver in the 4x100 free relay and placed fourth in the 100 free. At the 1968 Olympics Kuļikovs was again successful in relay races, winning silver in the 4x100 free relay and bronze in 4x200 relay, while placing sixth in the 100 freestyle. The 1970 European Championships were Kuļikovs’ best meet, as he won his only international individual medals, bronze in the 100 and 200 freestyle, in addition to the 4x100 free relay title and silver in the 4x200 relay. Kuļikovs also competed at the 1972 Olympics and 1974 European Championships, winning three more relay medals: 4x200 free relay bronze at the 1972 Olympics and 4x100 free relay and 4x200 free relay silver at the 1974 European Championships. Domestically, Kuļikovs won only one Soviet title, in 1970 in the 200 metre freestyle, although he was a 10-time Latvian SSR swimming champion.

Personal Best: 100 m freestyle – 52.77 (1974); 200 m freestyle – 1:55.38 (1974).
