Vincent Luis (born 1989), is a French professional triathlete, the Junior European and World Champion of the year 2008, French U23 Champion of the year 2010,[1] and part of the National Team called Collectif France Ambition 2012.

Vincent Luis represents the club Ste Geneviève Triathlon and takes part in the prestigious French Club Championship Series Lyonnaise des Eaux. In Beauvais (13 June 2010) and in Paris (18 July 2010) he placed 3rd and was the best triathlete of his club, which placed 3rd and 7th respectively, at the Grand Final in La Baule (18 September 2010) he placed 8th and his club 10th. Luis did not take part in the opening triathlon of this circuit in Dunkirk (23 May 2010) nor at the Triathlon des Tourangeaux/Tours (29 August 2010), and it is easy to see the decisive role he plays as in these competitions his club placed only 16th, i.e. last. [2]

He is in a relationship with racing cyclist Pauline Ferrand-Prévot.[3]
