Graziano Mancinelli (18 February 1937 – 8 October 1992) was an Italian show jumping rider. He competed at the 1964, 1968, 1972, 1976 and 1984 Olympics and won one gold and two bronze medals. He was initially banned from the 1964 Olympics, as he was considered a professional rider for the Milan horse-dealing company of Fratelli Rivolta, but the ban was lifted the day before the Olympics. Outside Olympics Mancinelli won a silver medal at the 1970 World Championships, a European title in 1963, and six national titles.[1]
