Vladimir Nikolayevich Issachenko (Template:Lang-kz; born December 27, 1982 in Temirtau) is a Kazakh sport shooter.[1] He finished sixth in free pistol shooting at the 2004 Summer Olympics, and eventually won a bronze medal in the standard pistol at the 2006 Asian Games in Doha, Qatar.[2][3] Having pursued the sport since the age of eleven, Issachenko trained as a member of the shooting team for Dynamo Sport Club in Almaty under his personal coach and two-time Olympic bronze medalist Vladimir Vokhmyanin.[2]

Issachenko qualified for the Kazakh squad in pistol shooting at the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens, by having achieved a minimum qualifying score of 560 and securing a berth with a silver-medal effort in free pistol from the Asian Championships in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.[2][4][5] In the men's 10 m air pistol, held on the first day of the Games, Issachenko shot 576 points to finish in a four-way tie with Italy's Vigilio Fait, Japan's Masaru Nakashige, and Germany's Abdulla Ustaoglu for twenty-third place.[6] Three days later, Issachenko came strong from his frustrated air pistol feat to take the sixth spot in the 50 m pistol final with a score of 654.5 points.[7][8]

At the 2006 Asian Games in Doha, Qatar, Issachenko fired a score of 570 to pick up a bronze medal in the 25 m standard pistol, just a point away from South Korea's Park Byung-taek.[3][9]
