Mouhcine Cheaouri (born 15 January 1989) is a Moroccan track and field athlete who competes in the pole vault. He is a two-time African champion in the event and has a personal best of 5.20 metres.

Born in the city of Oujda,[1] Cheaouri made his international debut at the 2007 Pan Arab Games, where he finished in sixth place.[2] He improved his personal best to 5.20 m in 2008 and quickly ascended to the top of the regional scene by winning the gold medal at the 2008 African Championships in Athletics, beating decathletes Larbi Bouraada and Willem Coertzen.[3]

He did not compete in 2009 and 2010, but returned to form in 2011 with a clearance of 5.20 m in Meknes. He placed ninth at the 2011 Military World Games,[4] was runner-up at the Arab Athletics Championships, then took the gold medal at the 2011 Pan Arab Games.[5] A vault of 5.10 m was enough to secure his second continental win at the 2012 African Championships in Athletics.[1]

In 2016 he tested positive for stanozolol and was banned from competition for four years between 30 April 2016 and 9 June 2020.[6]
