Marios Athanasiadis (born 31 October 1986, Nicosia)[1] is a Cypriot cross-country mountain biker.[2] At the 2012 Summer Olympics, he competed in the Men's cross-country at Hadleigh Farm, finishing in 40th place, the last rider to finish without being lapped.[3] At the 2014 Commonwealth Games he finished in 16th place in the men's cross-country.[4]

He took up cycling at the age of 12, introduced to it by the man who would become his coach.[5] His gold medal at the 2009 Games of the Small States of Europe was Cyprus's first in mountain biking.[5] He was also the Cypriot Youth Ambassador at 2010 Youth Olympic Games.[5]
