Maria Petronella "Puck" Oversloot (May 22, 1914 – January 7, 2009) was a Dutch swimmer. Together with Marie Braun, she was the top national backstroke and freestyle competitor. At the 1932 Summer Olympics, Braun was listed for the 4x100 m freestyle relay, but fell ill and was replaced by Oversloot. The team won a silver medal. Both Braun and Oversloot qualified for 400m freestyle semifinals, but because Braun could not participate, Oversloot withdrew from the event, in solidarity.
In 1933, Oversloot broke the national record in 100m backstroke set by Braun and became the national champion. She won a bronze medal in the same event at the 1934 European Aquatics Championships.
She was born and died in Rotterdam.
