Justin Kripps (born January 6, 1987) is a Canadian bobsledder who has competed since 2006. He won his first Bobsleigh World Cup race in the men's four bob at the meeting in Cortina d'Ampezzo, Italy, January 2008 alongside Pierre Lueders, Ken Kotyk and David Bissett.

On December 19, 2007, Kripps and Lueders became the first people to slide down the Whistler Sliding Centre in British Columbia. Kripps finished fifth in the four-man event at the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver.

At Simon Fraser University (Burnaby, BC), Kripps led the 4 x 100 m team (Justin Kripps, Neal Hurtubise, Rob Drapala, Brett Robinson) to All-American honors and a school record at the 2005 NAIA Outdoor Track and Field Championships in Louisville, Kentucky (SFU Athletics, 2009 & NAIA 2005).

While attending the 2014 Sochi Olympics, Kripps learned that his own website had been restricted from access in Russia. Kripps said in response on his Twitter account, "Looks like my website is censored in Russia, haha classic #SochiProblems I wonder if there's a camera in my room".[2]
