Park Na-Ri (Korean: 박 나리; born March 3, 1988) is a South Korean swimmer, who specialized in freestyle and individual medley events.[1] She won two bronze medals, as a member of the South Korean swimming team, in the 800 m freestyle relay at the 2006 Asian Games in Doha, Qatar, and at the 2010 Asian Games in Guangzhou, China.[2]

Park qualified for the women's 200 m individual medley at the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens, by attaining a B-standard entry time of 2:20.17.[3] Park challenged five other swimmers on the first heat, including two-time Olympians Marina Mulyayeva of Kazakhstan and Vered Borochovski of Israel. She edged out Iceland's Lára Hrund Bjargardóttir to a third-place sprint by more than six tenths of a second (0.60) with a time of 2:21.48. Park failed to qualify for the semifinals, as she placed twenty-sixth overall in the preliminaries.[4]
