Petr Vasiliev (also Pyotr Vasiliev, Uzbek: ? ; born April 21, 1981) is an Uzbek former swimmer, who specialized in freestyle events.[1] He is a two-time Olympian (2000 and 2004), and a top 16 finalist in the 200 m freestyle at the 2002 Asian Games in Busan, South Korea.[2]

Vasiliev made his first Uzbek squad at the 2000 Summer Olympics in Sydney, where he competed only in the 4×100 m freestyle relay, along with Ravil Nachaev, Oleg Tsvetkovskiy, and Oleg Pukhnatiy. Vasiliev supposedly swam a third leg in the first heat, but his team was disqualified due to an early relay takeoff by Pukhnatiy.[3][4]

At the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens, Vasiliev qualified as an individual swimmer for the men's 200 m freestyle. He cleared a FINA B-standard entry time of 1:54.94 from the World Championships in Barcelona, Spain.[5][6] He challenged seven other swimmers in heat two, including dual citizen Mihail Alexandrov of Bulgaria. He rounded out the field to last place by less than 0.18 of a second behind Kazakhstan's Vitaliy Khan, outside his entry time of 1:56.93. Vasiliev failed to advance into the semifinals, as he placed fifty-seventh overall in the preliminaries.[7][8]
