Timothy John (Tim) Cuddihy (born 21 May 1987) is an archer from Toowoomba, Australia,[1] who competed at the 2004 Summer Olympics in men's individual matchplay archery. He won his first three elimination matches, advancing to the quarterfinals.

In the quarterfinals, Cuddihy faced Park Kyung-mo of Korea, defeating Park 112-111 in the 12-arrow match and advancing to the semifinals. There, he faced Hiroshi Yamamoto of Japan, losing to the eventual silver medalist in a 10-9 tie-breaker after the first 12 arrows resulted in a 115-115 tie. Cuddihy then competed against Laurence Godfrey of Great Britain in the bronze medal match, winning 113-112 to earn the bronze medal. Cuddihy was also a member of the 6th-place Australian men's archery team at the 2004 Summer Olympics.[2]

Cuddihy retired temporarily from archery after failing to qualify for the 2008 Beijing Olympics, but returned to the Australian Institute of Sport's archery program in January 2010.[3] The AIS Archery program ceased at the end of 2011.
