Andrea Fuentes Fache (born 7 April 1983 in Valls, Tarragona) is a Spanish retired synchronised swimmer. She is the sister of synchronised swimmer Tina Fuentes. She is the most decorated swimmer in the history of the Spanish national team, with four Olympic, 16 World Championship and 11 European Championship medals: her four Olympic medals also make her the most decorated Spanish female Olympian of all time, alongside Arantxa Sánchez Vicario and Mireia Belmonte.
She joined the national synchronised swimming team in 1999. Andrea has competed at the 2004, 2008 and 2012 Summer Olympics, where she has won four medals in the women's duet and women's team events. She retired from elite competition in January 2013, citing demotivation as a result of a conflict between the Royal Spanish Swimming Federation and the head coach of the national team, Ana Tarrés. Since retiring she has become a synchronised swimming coach.
