Jamel Chatbi (born 30 April 1984) is a Moroccan-born athlete who specialises in the 3000 metres steeplechase and competes for Italy.


Based in Northern Italy,[1] Chatbi began competing in 2006 and finished third in the Tutta Dritta 10km that year.[2] He ran a new steeplechase best at the Mondo Keien Meeting in Uden, Netherlands, setting a new stadium record of 8:29.13.[3]

He ran in the Campaccio cross country race and finished in eighth place.[1] Chatbi attended the 2008 IAAF World Cross Country Championships, his first major event, and finished in 30th place, helping Morocco to fifth in the team rankings along with Abdellah Falil.[4] He took part in the 2008 Parelloop race in Brunssum and finished in eleventh place with a new 10 km best of 28:33 minutes.

He improved significantly in 2009 and won his first major medal by setting a Games record and personal best of 8:13.11 for the gold in the steeplechase at the 2009 Mediterranean Games.[5] At the 2009 World Championships in Athletics, he qualified for the final after finishing second in his heat behind eventual gold medallist Ezekiel Kemboi.[6] However, he withdrew from the final after failing a mandatory drugs test, testing positive for clenbuterol. He was the first person to test positive at the championships.[7] He received a three-year ban from competitive athletics lasting from 18 August 2009 until 17 September 2012.[8]
