Milano’s Antenore Negri was an Italian middle-distance runner in the 1920s. Domestically he won Italian titles in the steeplechase in 1924 and 1925, which qualified him for the 1924 Paris Olympics where he did not advance to the final. This was his only international cap.

Negri set two Italian records, at 2,000 meters with 5:46.4 in København on 26 June 1922 and a year later, at the Paris Pershing Stadium, on 10 June, in the 3,000 meters with 8:47.4, a record he held for seven years.

Personal Best: 3000S – 8:47.4 (1923).
