Anastasios "Tasos" Gousis (Greek: Αναστάσιος "Τάσος" Γκούσης, born 7 July 1979) is a Greek sprint athlete.

He was born in Corfu.[1]

He competed in the 200 m and 400 m in the 2000 Olympics, but did not progress further from the heats in either event. At the 2004 Olympics he made the semi-finals in the 200 m and competed for Greece in the 4x400 m relay.[1]

He finished eighth in the 200 m final at the 2006 European Athletics Championships and at the 2007 World Championships.[1]

He was tested positive for methyltrienolone in his A-sample on 4 August 2008, before the 2008 Summer Olympics, and was called back to Greece, pending the results of his B-sample. He received an IAAF suspension from August 2008 to August 2010. [2]
