Pablo Montes Casanova (born November 23, 1945 in Havana – died October 26, 2008) was a Cuban sprinter. His career highlight came in 1968 as he, together with Hermes Ramírez, Juan Morales, and Enrique Figuerola, won an Olympic silver medal in 4 x 100 metres relay. He was also fourth in the 100 m final, just outside the medals. In 1970, he won both the short sprint events (100 metres and 200 metres) at the Central American and Caribbean Games. In his semi-final for the 100 metres, he clocked a wind-assisted time of 9.93 seconds, then the second fastest time ever, and only the third time that anyone had broken ten seconds.

He died of heart attack in 2008.[1]
