William Gilbert Stovall, V (born June 3, 1986) is an American swimmer who competed at the 2008 Olympic Games. Stovall placed second in his signature event, the 200 m butterfly, at the US Olympic Team Trials in Omaha, Nebraska, with a career-best time of 1:53.86, which earned him a place on the olympic team. At that time, Stovall was the second-fastest swimmer ever in that event, behind only Michael Phelps.

Stovall swam competitively for the University of Georgia from 2004 to 2008. In his final season at Georgia, he broke Melvin Stewart's 17-year-old NCAA record in the 200-yard butterfly at the NCAA Men's Swimming Championships, winning the title.
