Biography

Nikolay ANIKIN

Besides his three Olympic medals, Nikolay Anikin won a silver at the 1958 World Championships in Lahti in the 4x10 km relay race. His only Soviet Championship came in 1957, also in the relay. After his sporting days Anikin worked as a ski coach, coaching the 1964 and 1968 Soviet Olympic teams. After being a head coach of the Soviet cross-country skiing junior team for many years, he was a head coach of the Soviet senior team from 1982-84. From 1989-92 he worked as a consultant with the United States cross-country ski team. He and his wife, Antonina, moved to Duluth, Minnesota in 1994 to help start the emerging Gitchi Gummi Sport Association, where they taught a new generation of American Nordic skiers.
