Kristen Elizabeth Babb-Sprague (born July 29, 1968 in Walnut Creek, California) is an American competitor in synchronized swimming and Olympic champion.[1]

She won gold medal in Solo synchronized swimming at the 1992 Summer Olympics in Barcelona, after a scoring scandal.[2] Fourteen months later Sylvie Fréchette of Canada was awarded a belated gold medal by the International Swimming Federation, while Babb-Sprague was allowed to retain her medal.[2]

Her husband is former Major League Baseball player Ed Sprague.
