Kanstantsin Leonidovich Lukashyk (Belarusian: Канстанцін Леонідовіч Лукашык, Kanstancin Leonidovič Łukašyk, born September 18, 1975 in Hrodna) is a Belarusian pistol shooter, most famous for winning the 50 metre pistol event at the 1992 Summer Olympics in Barcelona, at the age of 16, shocking the world of competitive shooting. The final was one of the first successes for broadcasting of shooting, and for his last shot Lukashyk raised his arm four times, the shot finally breaking only seconds before the 75-second deadline.

The year after Barcelona, Lukashyk set a junior world record in 10 metre air pistol (lasting until 2006), and has ever since been a regular member of the Belarusian national team, with varying results including some medals at ISSF World Cups.

He has competed at six Olympics so far, from 1992 to 2012.[1][2]
