Ewout Holst (born 8 October 1978 in Den Haag, Zuid-Holland, Netherlands) is a Dutch former freestyle and butterfly swimmer.
Holst's early years were spent abroad, travelling with his family to the various postings his father was given as a government official. It was whilst at school in
Bonn that his skills as a swimmer became recognised.
He gained his first selection for the Dutch Team for the
1998 European Short Course Swimming Championships in Sheffield. He was disqualified in the heats of the 4 × 100 m freestyle relay at the 2000 Summer Olympics in Sydney, Australia. After a troubled period he decided to quit swimming after coming seventh in the 50 metres butterfly at the 2004 European Aquatics Championships in Madrid, Spain.
