Danil Sergeyevich Lysenko (Russian: Данил Сергеевич Лысенко; born 19 May 1997) is a Russian track and field athlete who specialises in the high jump. He won the silver medal at the 2017 World Championships.[2]


Lysenko won his first international medal at the second Summer Youth Olympics, winning a gold medal in the boys' high jump with a clearance of 2.20 m, ahead of Yuji Hiramatsu.[3][4]

In August 2018, Lysenko was stripped of his Authorized Neutral Athlete status and provisionally suspended, due to his failure to provide whereabouts information as required under IAAF Anti-Doping Rules and Regulations.[5]
