Natalya Valeryevna Bochina (Russian: Наталья Валерьевна Бочина) (born January 4, 1962 in St. Petersburg) is a Soviet athlete who competed mainly in the 200 metres. Bochina trained at Dynamo in Leningrad.

Bochina was relatively young at 18 years of age when she competed for the USSR in the 1980 Summer Olympics held in Moscow, Soviet Union. However, she proved to the world just how fast she was in the 200m final by just claiming the Silver Medal in a time of 22.19 seconds. She then helped her team mates Vera Komisova, Lyudmila Maslakova and Vera Anisimova to the silver medal in the 4x100 metres relay.
