Nicolas Gill (born April 24, 1972 in Montreal, Quebec) is a judoka from Canada, who twice won an Olympic medal in his career. He first did so at the 1992 Summer Olympics in Barcelona, where he won the bronze medal in the middleweight (86 kg) division. Eight years later, when Sydney hosted the Summer Olympics, Gill captured the silver medal in the men's half-heavyweight (100 kg) category. He competed in four consecutive Olympics, starting in 1992. Gill was Canada's flag bearer in the opening ceremony at the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens. In 2007, he received the prix reconnaissance from UQAM[3] as a Téluq student.[1]

He has since become a coach; one of his athletes Antoine Valois-Fortier, won a bronze medal at the London 2012 Summer Games.[4]
