Biography

The winter of 1964 was a successful one for Nikolay Kiselyov. First he won his only Soviet title and qualified for the Olympic Games. At Innsbruck, Kiselyov surprised everyone by placing third behind the favorites Georg Thoma and Tormod Knutsen in the jumping phase of the Nordic combined. But his chances to medal were considered low as Kiselyov was not a strong skier. But his closest competitor Thoma fell twice during the course and Kiselyov beat him by a very small margin to take the silver medal. This was also Kiselyov’s only international appearance. He later worked as a Nordic combined coach in his native St. Petersburg.
