Parnaoz Lukich Chikviladze (Georgian: ფარნაოზ ჩიკვილაძე, Russian: Парнаоз Лукич Чиквиладзе, 14 April 1941 – 14 June 1966) was a Georgian judoka, who won a bronze medal in the heavyweight division (+80 kg) at the 1964 Summer Olympics. At the European Championships he won a gold medal in 1965 and silver medals in 1964, 1965 and 1966. In 1964 he also was European champion in the team event.[1] He died in a car accident in Moscow in 1966 and thus never competed in the Soviet judo championships, which were first conducted in 1973.[2]
