Gavin Ramon Smellie (born June 26, 1986; Saint Andrew Parish Jamaica) is a Jamaican-born Canadian sprinter. He participated in the 2012 Summer Olympics in the 4x100m relay with teammates Jared Connaughton, Oluseyi Smith and Justyn Warner. In the final, the Canadian relay team arrived in third place and initially believed they had won bronze but they were disqualified when officials judged that Connaughton had stepped on the lane line just before passing the baton. The relay team from Trinidad and Tobago were awarded the bronze.
