Biography

Ivan Kučírek was a pure track sprinter who competed at the 1964, 1968, and 1972 Olympics, but never made a podium at the Olympics. It was somewhat of a surprise for this sprinter who won numerous medals in other events. Kučírek won 23 Czechoslovakian track titles, winning the sprint in 1963, 1965, 1967-69, 1971, 1973-74, 1976, and 1978-79, and the tandem sprint in 1966-69, 1971, 1974-76, and 1980-83. Kučírek also won three World Championships, winning the tandem consecutively from 1980-82 with Pavel Martinek, adding silver medals in that event in 1976 and 1983. He also added a bronze medal at the 1971 Worlds in the individual sprint.
