Mykola Mykolayovych Milchev (Ukrainian: Микола Миколайович Мільчев, born November 3, 1967) is a Ukrainian sports shooter. He is the 2000 Olympic champion in skeet shooting.[1] With a perfect score of 150, he set an Olympic record and tied the world record.

Career[edit]

Milchev won gold at the 2000 Summer Olympics in Sydney, Australia. The skeet rules were changed in 2005, removing the old world records, but in May 2009 at the ISSF World Cup in Cairo, he once again achieved a perfect qualification score of 125 to equal the world record.

Milchev served as Ukraine's flagbearer at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.
