Justin ("Judo") Anlezark (born 14 August 1977 in Katherine) is a male shot putter from Australia. His personal best throw is 20.96 metres, achieved in April 2003 in Brisbane.

After the 2004 Olympics Anlezark had a few mediocre seasons, but after throwing 20.33 and 20.41 at the Loughborough International meet in 2008, selectors nominated Anlezark to the Australian Olympic Committee for selection in the team for the 2008 Summer Olympics. He joined Scott Martin making this the first Olympics since Melbourne in 1956 that Australia was represented by two male shotputters. Neither of them reached the final round.
