Vassilios Sillis (Greek: Βασίλειος Σίλλης; 9 March 1929 – 5 January 2018)[1] was a Greek athlete and a record holder over 400m in Greece.

As a sprinter he competed in the 1952 Summer Olympics and in the 1960 Summer Olympics. He was born in Athens.[2] in 2012 he returned his very first award by PSAT (Panhellenic Association of Athletics Press) taken in 1953.[3] He returned the award saying that he only wanted "to return a historical token of an institution that entails the great honour for any athlete who can be awarded by Sports Press".[4]
