Konstantinos Tsiklitiras (Κωνσταντίνος Τσικλητήρας in Greek, lived October 30, 1888 - February 10, 1913) was a Greek athlete and Olympic champion.

Born in Pylos, he moved to Athens to study commerce. Tsiklitiras soon took up sports. He practised soccer (for Panathinaikos) and water polo, but is best remembered for winning four Olympic medals in standing long jump and standing high jump. He became Greek champion 19 times.

His career came to a halt in 1913 when he volunteered to fight in the Balkan Wars, where he contracted meningitis and died at the age of 24.
