Jocelyn Delecour (born 2 January 1935) is a retired French sprinter. He competed in various sprint events at the 1956, 1960, 1964 and 1968 Olympics and won a bronze medal in 1964 in the 4×100 metre relay, together with Paul Genevay, Bernard Laidebeur and Claude Piquemal. Four years later he and Piquemal teamed up with Gérard Fenouil and Roger Bambuck to win the bronze medal once again in the same event.[1]

At the European Championships, Delecour won a gold, a silver and a bronze medal in the 4×100 m (1966), 100 m (1962) and 200 m (1958) events, respectively.[2]
