Tetyana Volodymyrivna Dorovskikh (née Samolenko-Khamitova, Ukrainian: Тетяна Володимирівна Доровских, née Самойленко-Хамітова, born 12 August 1961) is a retired middle distance runner who represented the USSR (until 1991), the Unified Team, and later Ukraine.

She was born in village Sekretarka, Severny District, Orenburg Oblast.

Dorovskikh dominated the sport in the late 1980s ( when she was known as Tetyana Samolenko ), winning three major gold medals in 1987 and an Olympic gold medal in 1988.

Her previous performances were somewhat soured when she tested positive for drug use in June 1993, which effectively brought an end to her career.
