Jury Dimitri Chechi (born October 11, 1969) is a retired Italian gymnast.

Biography

Born in Prato (Tuscany), he won the Olympics title in the rings at Atlanta 1996 and was third at Athens 2004. This bronze was the fruit of a comeback at the age of 35, ten to fifteen years older than most of his competitors.

Jury Chechi dominated his specialty, the rings, during the nineties, so he was named "The Lord of the Rings", however he could not participate in the Barcelona 1992 and Sydney 2000 Olympic games due to serious injuries. He has won five gold and two bronze medals at the World Gymnastics Championships and four gold and two bronze medals at the European Championships.

Chechi was the Italian flagbearer at the opening ceremony in the Athens Games in 2004. He also participated in the 2006 Winter Olympics opening ceremony in Turin.

Jury sparked some controversy at the 2004 Athens Olympic games when he shook the hand of Silver medalist in the rings final, Jordan Jovtchev and signaled that he should have won the gold medal, not Dimosthenis Tampakos (meaning that he won only because he was the local champion).
