Romel Raffin (born April 23, 1954 in Toronto, Ontario) is a three-time Canadian Olympian in men's basketball.


A native of Kitchener, Ontario, Raffin played for Canada at the 1976, 1984, and 1988 Summer Olympics. He was a member of the 1980 team as well which had qualified for the tournament but did not participate due to the Canadian Olympic Committee's decision to boycott the Moscow games.

A centre-forward, Raffin played college basketball for the Penn State Nittany Lions from 1974 to 1978. He played professionally in Italy for one year and spent another year playing pro in Venezuela, with the Caracas Crocodiles.

In the early 80's Raffin taught physical education, as well as some other courses at Woodman Jr. High in Calgary.

Raffin became basketball coach at Central Memorial High School in Calgary in 1989 and the school's athletic director in 1994. He was inducted as a player into the Canadian Basketball Hall of Fame in 1996.
