Agata Czaplicki (born October 22, 1983) is a Swiss former swimmer, who specialized in breaststroke events.[1] She represented Switzerland, as a 16-year-old, at the 2000 Summer Olympics, and also held numerous national meet and age group records in a breaststroke double (both 100 and 200 m).[2]

Czaplicki competed in a breaststroke double at the 2000 Summer Olympics in Sydney. She achieved FINA B-standards of 1:12.40 (100 m breaststroke) and 2:31.12 (200 m breaststroke) from the European Championships in Helsinki, Finland.[3][4][5] On the second day of the Games, Czaplicki placed twenty-seventh in the 100 m breaststroke. Swimming in heat three, she came up with a spectacular swim on the final stretch to a third seed in 1:13.19, more than half a second (0.50) closer to her entry standard.[6][7] Three days later, in the 200 m breaststroke, Czaplicki posted a time of 2:32.98 from the final of five heats, but finished outside the semifinals by 3.38 seconds with a twenty-second-place effort.[8][9][10]
