Susen Tiedtke (born 23 January 1969 in East Berlin, East Germany) is a German former long jumper, who took part in two editions of the Summer Olympics and won a silver and a bronze medal at the IAAF World Indoor Championships in Athletics in 1993 and 1995 respectively.

Tiedtke represented Germany in the long jump at the 1992 Olympic Games, where she finished 8th, and the 2000 Olympic Games, where she finished 5th. At the 1992 games, Tiedtke had originally finished ninth, but was promoted to eighth after the drugs disqualification of Nijole Medvedeva. This would also happen in 2000 when she was promoted from sixth to fifth after the drugs disqualification of Marion Jones.[1][2]

Following her bronze medal win at the 1995 IAAF World Indoor Championships, Tiedtke tested positive for Oral-Turinabol, and was banned for two years.[1][3]

Tiedtke won the East German championship in balance beam in 1982.
