English Gardner (born April 22, 1992) is an American sprinter who specializes in the 100 and 200 metres. Gardner qualified for the 2013 World Championships in Athletics in Moscow after winning the 100 metres at the 2013 USA Outdoor Track and Field Championships. Her time of 10.85 (+1.8) equalled the best time run in 2013 to that date by Barbara Pierre set earlier that same day in a semi-final. In Moscow, Gardner just missed the podium with a 4th place finish in the 100 metres with a time of 10.97 (-0.3).

While running for the University of Oregon, in 2011 she set what should be the American Junior Record in the 100 metres at 11.03 (+0.6) set while winning the Pac-10 Championships. Her mark is superior to the listed record by Angela Williams from 1999, but that mark has not yet been ratified.

The 2013 NCAA champion qualified for World Championship where she finished 4th[1] in the 100 meters.
