Jadel Abdul Ghani Gregório (born 16 September 1980 in Jandaia do Sul, Paraná) is a Brazilian athlete competing in long jump and triple jump. Based in São Paulo, he has competed in several international championships since 2001. His jump of 17.90m is the South American and Brazilian record and ranks him tied for eighth best ever.

He was a competitor for Brazil in the 2008 Summer Olympics. The Chinese hosts constructed an extension to his bed to accommodate his 2.03 meter (6 ft 8 in) frame.[1]

After marrying Samara Abdul Ghani, his Lebanese physiotherapist, in 2005 Gregório converted to Islam[2] and changed his legal name to Jadel Abdul Ghani Gregório. Samara has since given birth to their first child, Jade, and to their second child, Sahara.[3]
