Frederick Claude Vivian Lane (2 February 1880 – 14 May 1969) was an Australian swimmer.
Lane, from Manly, New South Wales, attended high school at Saint Ignatius' College, Riverview, and was the first Australian to represent his country in swimming at the Olympic Games, although he was actually a part of the British team when he competed at the 1900 Paris Games and won two gold medals.
It was rumored that Lane, by the end of his career, swore never to swim again.
