Glenn O'Shea (born 14 June 1989) is an Australian track cyclist who won the Omnium at the 2012 UCI Track Cycling World Championships. He was also a member of the Australian team that won silver in the team pursuit.

O'Shea briefly quit cycling as an under-23 in 2010 after contracting a severe case of glandular fever. However, after a representing the Australia in team pursuit and omnium in both the Worlds and the Olympics in 2012, he joined the An Post-ChainReaction continental cycling team for 2013. A third place at Ronde de l'Oise, in which he celebrated a stage win and wore the leader's jersey led to interest from Garmin-Sharp for whom he rode in the 2013 World Ports Classic. He started the 2013 Tour of Britain as lead-out man for Steele Von Hoff.[1]

He remained with An Post-ChainReaction into 2014.
