David Charles "Dave" Ottley (born 5 August 1955 in West Thurrock, Essex) was a British athlete who mainly competed in the men's javelin throw event. He competed for Great Britain at the 1984 Summer Olympics held in Los Angeles, United States where he won the silver medal in the men's javelin throw event.
Ottley is referenced In "The Boy Who Cried Rat" episode of Good Morning Miss Bliss, in which Mr. Belding (Dennis Haskins) proclaims that nobody remembers second place, referencing the javelin throw of 1984 Summer Olympics. Miss Bliss however correctly identifies that the silver medallist was indeed Ottley.
Ottley now resides in Shropshire.
