Łukasz Drzewiński (born March 9, 1984 in Gorzów Wielkopolski) is a retired Polish swimmer, who specialized in freestyle and butterfly events.[1] Drzewinski won a silver medal in the 200 m butterfly at the 2002 European Junior Swimming Championships in Linz, Austria with a time of 2:00.21, edging out Ukraine's Serhiy Advena by 0.04 of a second.[2] He is a member of the swimming team for AZS Warszawa, and is coached and trained by Roberta Białeckiego.

Drzewinski qualified for the men's 400 m freestyle at the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens, by finishing second from the Olympic test event, in an A-standard time of 3:51.44.[3][4] Drzewinski failed to qualify for the final, as he placed fourteenth out of 47 swimmers in the morning's preliminary heats, lowering his entry time to 3:50.97.[5][6] In the 200 m freestyle, Drzewinski challenged seven other swimmers on the fifth heat, including three-time Olympian Jacob Carstensen of Denmark.
