Augusto Dutra da Silva de Oliveira (born 16 July 1990) is a Brazilian track and field athlete who competes in the pole vault. He has personal bests of 5.82 metres (outdoor) and 5.71 m (indoors) are the South American records for the event.[1]

Born in Marília in Brazil's São Paulo state, de Oliveira first competed internationally in 2009: he won the South American Junior title with a vault of 4.90 metres and placed fourth at the 2009 Pan American Junior Athletics Championships.[2][3] His personal best that year was 5.00 m.[4] He began training under Elson Miranda, a former pole vaulter, with the Clube Atletismo BM&F Bovespa.[5]

The following year he took the title at the 2010 South American Games (which doubled as the South American Under-23 Championships).[6] He improved his best to 5.40 metres in May and went on to place second nationally at the Brazilian Athletics Championships. He was fourth at the 2011 South American Championships in Athletics. His 2012 was highlighted by a new personal best of 5.45 m and a silver medal at the 2012 Ibero-American Championships in Athletics.[7]

At the beginning of 2013 he rapidly ascended to the top of the regional rankings. He cleared a South American indoor record of 5.66 m then another of 5.71 m in March.[8] He won at the Grande Premio Brasil Caixa de Atletismo with an outdoor best of 5.70 m, beating reigning South American champion Fabio Gomes da Silva.[9] Later that week in Uberlândia he broke da Silva's outdoor continental mark with a vault of 5.81 m.[8]

On June 22, 2013 he broke again the South American record with a 5.82 mark.[10]
