Guy Revell (August 2, 1941 – March 11, 1981) was a Canadian figure skater. He competed in pairs with Debbi Wilkes. The couple captured two Canadian titles, the 1963 North American Championship, and won the bronze medal at the 1964 Winter Olympics.
They had to withdraw from the 1963 World Figure Skating Championships when Wilkes fell from a lift while posing for press photographs prior to the event. She hit the ice head-first and fractured her skull.
In 1966, Wilkes and Revell were advised that the second-place pair in Innsbruck, Marika Kilius and Hans-Jürgen Bäumler had been disqualified after an International Olympic Committee investigation found they had signed pro contracts before the Winter Games. IOC executive James Worrall presented Wilkes and Revell with the silver medals during the Canadian championships in Peterborough, Ont. Later, Kilius and Baumler were reinstated in the record books, but the medals were never redistributed.
Revell, who had relatively little formal education, had difficulty adjusting to life after his performing career ended, and suffered from serious emotional problems. He committed suicide in 1981.
