James William "Bill" George Roycroft OBE (17 March 1915 – 29 May 2011) was an Olympic equestrian champion who competed for Australia in five consecutive Summer Olympic Games: 1960, 1964, 1968, 1972 and 1976.
Roycroft was born in Flowerdale, Victoria. Although seriously injured during the 1960 Olympics in Rome, he left his hospital bed to compete in show jumping, which was the final event. He rode a flawless round, and Australia won the gold medal.
Roycroft died in hospital at Camperdown, Victoria, on 29 May 2011, aged 96. At the time of his death, he was Australia's oldest surviving Olympian, having assumed that mantle at the death of shooter Neville Holt in 2008.
