Vincent Mumo Kiilu (born 3 August 1982) is a Kenyan sprint runner and hurdler who has competed in the 2008 and the 2012 Olympic Games.[1]

In the 2012 Olympics 4x400 meter relay semifinal heat, Kiilu cut in front of South Africa's Ofentse Mogawane and both runners fell. Mogawane dislocated his shoulder and was unable to complete the race. The South African team filed an appeal, and the Kenyan team was disqualified when the IAAF ruled that Kiilu had obstructed Mogawane.[2]

Kiilu is affiliated with the Kenyan army.[1]
