Regina Weber (born 12 April 1963) is a retired German rhythmic gymnast.

When rhythmic gymnastics was officially added as an Olympic Sport in 1984, athletes from USSR and Bulgaria were considered as favorites, but the Eastern led Boycott of the 1984 Summer Olympics meant the top competitors were absent. Weber then went to win the bronze medal at the 1984 Summer Olympics behind Romanian silver medalist Doina Stăiculescu.[1] Between 1981 and 1986 she won nearly all national titles in various rhythmic gymnastics events, and retired after 1987.[2]
