Emanuele Di Gregorio (born December 13, 1980 in Castellammare del Golfo, Sicily) is a track and field sprint athlete who competes internationally for Italy.[1]

Biography[edit]

Di Gregorio represented Italy at the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing. He competed in the 4×100 metres relay together with Fabio Cerutti, Simone Collio and Jacques Riparelli. In their qualification heat they were disqualified and eliminated.[1] He achieved a new personal best at the 2009 European Athletics Indoor Championships in Turin with a 6.56-second run for the 60 metres dash. A photo-finish revealed he came in third just ahead of Great Britain's Simeon Williamson (6.57).

He succeeded at the regional level with a silver medal in the 100 m at the 2009 Mediterranean Games, before adding the relay gold to his honours. He ran at the 2009 World Championships in Athletics, reaching the 100 m quarter-finals and he also helped the men's 4×100 metres relay team to sixth in the final.

He ran a personal best in the 100 m at the 2010 European Athletics Championships, finishing in 10.17 seconds into a headwind to earn himself a place in the event final. He finished seventh in his first major outdoor final. He scored his first Italian record in the 100 m relay event with the men's team, who took the silver behind France in a record time of 38.17 seconds.
