Henri ("Harry") Léonard Barthélémi Dénis (28 August 1896 in Den Haag – 13 July 1971 in Den Haag) was a football defender from the Netherlands, who represented his home country at three consecutive Summer Olympics, starting in 1920.[1]

At his Olympic debut in Antwerp, Belgium he won the bronze medal with the Netherlands national football team, followed by a fourth place four years later in Paris, France. Dénis obtained a total number of 56 caps for Holland, in which he was captain in 37 matches. He was one of the most prominent Dutch footballers in the 1920s. Dénis delivered the Olympic Oath during the opening ceremony of the 1928 Summer Olympics in Amsterdam.[2]

Dénis held the Dutch caps record from 3 May 1925 (when he equaled the total of Bok de Korver) until 2 May 1937 (when his total was surpassed by Puck van Heel).[3]
