Emile Ali-Khan (6 June 1902 – 1960) was a French sprinter. He competed at the 1920 Summer Olympics in the 100 m and 4×100 metre relay events and finished in fifth and second place, respectively. The same year he won the national title in the 100 m and equalled the world record over 60 metres (6.8 s).[1]

Ali-Khan started training in sprint while studying at the Lycée Masséna in Nice. He stopped competing individually in 1921, but continued to run relay races.[1]
