George Henry Goulding (November 19, 1884 – January 31, 1966) was a Canadian athlete who competed mainly in the 10 kilometre walk.

He competed in three events at the 1908 Olympic Games in London: the 3500 metre walking race, in which he came fourth; the 10 mile walk, which he failed to finish; and the Marathon, in which he came 22nd out of 55 starters and 27 finishers. The two walking distances were discontinued after London.

He also competed for Canada in the 1912 Summer Olympics held in Stockholm, Sweden in the inaugural 10 kilometre walk where he won the gold medal.[1]
