Lee Se-Yeol (Korean: 이 세열; born October 15, 1990 in Jeollanam-do) is an amateur South Korean Greco-Roman wrestler, who played for the men's light heavyweight category.[1][2] In 2010, Lee defeated Japan's Norikatsu Saikawa for the gold medal in his respective division at the Asian Wrestling Championships in Delhi, India, and eventually captured a silver at the Asian Games in Guangzhou, China, losing out to Iran's Taleb Nematpour.[3][4]

Lee represented South Korea at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, where he competed for the men's 84 kg class. He lost the qualifying round match to Bosnian-born Austrian wrestler Amer Hrustanović, who was able to score four points in two straight periods, leaving Lee without a single point.[5]
