Anthonique Strachan (//; born 22 August 1993) is a Bahamian sprinter. She attended St. Augustine’s College in Nassau, Bahamas. She now lives and trains in Auburn, Alabama under coach Henry Rolle who also coaches Kerron Stewart and Marc Burns.
At the 2011 CARIFTA Games, she won two gold medals (100 metres in 11.38s (−0.8 m/s), and 200 metres in 23.17s (0.0 m/s)) in the junior (U-20) category equalling Veronica Campbell's 200 metres games record of 22.93s (1.1 m/s) in the heats.

Strachan won gold medals over 200 metres and 4×100 metres relay at the 2011 Pan American Junior Athletics Championships. Her 200 metres time of 22.70 was a new World Junior Leading and a new championship record.
