Danny Pinheiro Rodrigues (born April 6, 1985) is a French male artistic gymnast and a member of the national team. He was selected to compete for the French gymnastics squad in two editions of the Summer Olympic Games (2008 in Beijing and 2016 in Rio de Janeiro).[1]

At his second Olympic appearance in Rio de Janeiro, Pinheiro originally finished the rings apparatus in tenth position from the qualifying phase, but moved into the final after his teammate Samir Aït Saïd suffered a left leg injury and Dutch gymnast Yuri van Gelder was expelled from the competition for breaching team rules, including alcohol consumption.[2]
