Emanuel Fernando Sheffer Rego (born April 15, 1973 in Curitiba) is a beach volleyball player from Brazil, who competed in five consecutive Summer Olympics, starting in 1996. He won the gold medal in the men's beach team competition at the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens, Greece, partnering Ricardo Santos. He famously offered his medal to his compatriot Vanderlei de Lima – who won a bronze in the men's marathon after being attacked by Cornelius Horan – a year later, though it was politely declined.
