Chrysopigi "Pigi" Devetzi (Greek Χρυσοπηγή Δεβετζή), is a Greek athlete competing in the triple jump and also long jump.

Devetzi was born on January 2, 1976, in Alexandroupolis, Thrace. She competes on the club level for Olympiakos Piraeus.

She won the triple jump silver medal at the 2004 Summer Olympics with a jump of 15.25m, after setting the Greek record in the preliminaries with 15.32m.

On August 9, 2006, she won another silver medal at the 2006 European Athletics Championships in Gothenburg.

On June 15, 2008, she achieved the best triple jump of the year, world-wide: 14.92m. She bested that performance in the Olympics of Beijing and won the bronze medal.

On March 19, 2011, Devetzi was given a two-year ban from athletics by the ΙΑΑF, due to her failure, on May 23, 2009, to submit to a drug test. The decision was controversial due to inconsistencies and irregularities in the report of the doping control officer.
