Johnathan Andrew Steele (born June 25, 1984 in St. Georges) is a retired Grenadian swimmer, who specialized in sprint freestyle events. He held numerous age group titles for Grenada in the 50, 100, and 200 m freestyle, and was also chosen as the nation's student athlete for the Olympic Youth Camp, when Australia hosted the 2000 Summer Olympics in Sydney.
Steele qualified for the men's 50 m freestyle at the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens, by receiving a Universality place from FINA, in an entry time of 26.34. He challenged seven other swimmers in heat three, including 16-year-old Chris Hackel of Mauritius. He raced to third place in 26.40, just 0.06 of a second off his entry time.
