Alexander Grimm (born 6 September 1986 in Augsburg) is a German slalom canoeist who has competed since the early 2000s. He won gold in the K-1 event at the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing.

Grimm subsequently won the 2009 Adidas Sickline whitewater extreme race, despite having little previous experience of extreme whitewater or indeed of paddling the creekboats used to enhance paddler safety.

He also won three gold medals in the K-1 team event at the ICF Canoe Slalom World Championships, earning them in 2007, 2010 and 2011. He won a total of eight medals at the European Championships (2 golds, 5 silvers and 1 bronze).
