Evangelos Liogris (Greek: Ευάγγελος Λιόγρης; born June 27, 1974 in Athens) is a Greek sport shooter.[2] He was selected as one of eleven shooters to represent the host nation Greece at the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens, and had attained a top five finish in rifle shooting at a single meet of the ISSF World Cup series on that same year.[1] Liogris trains under Serbian-born head coach and 1988 Olympic champion Goran Maksimović for the national team, while shooting at ASO Ekati on the outskirts of Athens.[1][3]

Liogris was named as part of the host nation's shooting team to compete in small-bore rifle at the 2004 Summer Olympics in his native Athens.[4] He had registered a minimum qualifying score of 1138 in the rifle three positions from his outside-final finish at the ISSF World Cup meet in Munich, Germany to fill in the Olympic berth reserved to the host nation.[1][5] In the 50 m rifle prone, held a week after the start of the Games, Liogris fired 589 out of a possible 600 to force in a thirty-sixth place tie with New Zealand's Ryan Taylor and Thailand's world record holder Tevarit Majchacheeap.[6] Two days later, in the 50 m rifle 3 positions, Liogris shot a substantial 390 in prone and 381 in the kneeling stage, but his standing mark of 363 slipped him out of contention to a distant thirty-eighth place tie with Argentina's two-time Olympian Pablo Álvarez in a 40-shooter field, posting a combined score of 1135 points.[7][8]
