Arthur Nory Oyakawa Mariano (born 18 September 1993) is a Brazilian artistic gymnast and a member of the Brazilian national team. He participated in the 2015 World Artistic Gymnastics Championships, placing fourth in the horizontal bar and 12th all-around. He won the bronze medal in floor exercise at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro. He is the 2019 World Champion on horizontal bar.
Mariano was born in 1993, in Campinas, to a Japanese-Brazilian family. He practiced judo in a club as a child, following his father's footsteps. Mariano changed his mind after watching a gymnastics class.
After his parents' divorce, Mariano moved with his mother to São Paulo, where he entered in a gymnastics team in another club. When he was eleven (11), Mariano joined Esporte Clube Pinheiros. Mariano won the Brazilian Child Gymnastics Championship when he was fourteen (14).
In 2015, Mariano and fellow gymnasts Felipe Arakawa and Henrique Flores were suspended from the Brazilian national team for a month, after publishing a Snapchat video in which they made racist jokes addressed at another teammate, Afro-Brazilian gymnast Ângelo Assumpção.
Mariano published another video apologizing for the incident. After his teammate had won the bronze medal at 2016 Olympics, Assumpção said: "I don't keep a grudge on him. We are close friends. I am very proud of Nory. I just hope he behaves like a medal winner outside the arena too."
Besides being a professional gymnast, Mariano is also an internationally signed model. In 2019, Mariano is the face of Philippine-based international clothing brand BENCH's men's wear campaign in Brazil and Latin America.
