Description:
Fabrice Lapierre (born 17 October 1983 in Réduit, Mauritius) is a Mauritian-born Australian long jumper.

Lapierre placed 4th at the 2009 World Championships in Berlin, Germany, behind another Australian, Mitchell Watt, who took the bronze. At the 2010 World Indoor Championships in Doha, Qatar, Lapierre won the gold medal with a jump of 8.17 metres, beating both Watt and the defending champion Godfrey Mokoena of South Africa.

His personal best jump is 8.35 metres, achieved in 4 July 2009 in Madrid. He jumped 8.57 metres at the same competition<!--in 4 July 2009 in Madrid-->, but there was too much wind (+3.6 metres per second).

On April 18, 2010, at the Australian Athletics Championship in Perth, Lapierre grabbed the national title with a last-round jump of 8.78, again with an illegal tailwind of +3.1 metres per second. This was the longest jump in the world under any conditions since Iván Pedroso's 8.96 in Sestriere in 1995.

Lapierre competed for Texas A&M University in college, and was the NCAA long jump champion at the 2005 NCAA Outdoor National Track and Field Championships.

In 2011, Lapierre competed in the third season of the Channel Seven television series Australia's Greatest Athlete.
