Ramon di Clemente (born 2 May 1975) is a South African rower and Olympic medalist.

He competes in the coxless pair event with his boat partner of the past few years, Donovan Cech. They won the bronze medal in the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens.

In 2008, Donovan Cech was replaced by Shaun Keeling due to a persistent lower-back injury.[1] After only a few months rowing together Ramon di Clementi and Shaun Keeling went on to make the A final at the Olympics. After a closely fought race they were narrowly beaten by 4 crews and came in fifth.
