Athlete profile: Kiril Nikolov
NOTE! Athlete background is outdated, last updated August 2011
Started orienteering late - in 1998. Tried many sports before that, his major sport was highjumping (!). Studying finance and business at the National Sports Academy in Sofia. His breakthrough was 12th place on the sprint in WOC 2003, and he changed over in 3rd place at Tiomila 2005, just 2 seconds behind the leader. Did not succeed in Denmark - only 18th at his best. In 2007 he improved his best ever championship result to a 10th place on the long distance in WOC, further improving to a 6th place at WOC sprint in 2009. In 2010, he had big hopes for the EOC on home ground in Bulgaria, and finished 6th on the long distance although his hopes were higher. Changed to Halden SK ahead of 2009-season.
