Gervasio Deferr Angel (born November 7, 1980 in Premià de Mar, Barcelona) is a gymnast from Spain, who started in gymnastics at the age of five, and has since become the number one athlete of his country in that sport.
He became the Olympic champion in men's vault at the 2000 Summer Olympics in Sydney (scored 9.712) and has repeated the feat at the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens (scoring 9.737 average — vault 1 scored 9.687; vault 2 scored 9.787). Each of his ankles show a tattoo with the logo of one of these two Olympic Games.
He considers floor exercise as his favorite event and has had some success in major competitions. He finished in second place with the silver medal on floor at the 1999 World Championships of Gymastics with a score of 9.750 points, which he repeated eight years later with another silver medal at the 2007 World Championships as well as two titles in the same apparatus in the World Cup of Gymnastics:
He also had a finish in second place at the 2002 World Championships on floor exercise but the medal was soon taken away afterwards when he was tested positive for marijuana.
A curious aspect of Deferr's personality is his stating that he considers sleeping a hobby. He also has an iguana as a pet and likes Japanese and Korean cultures.
He has appeared on the Japanese game show Sasuke (Ninja Warrior in the United States), failing to complete the first stage.
