Anna Anatolevna Levandi (née Kondrashova) (Russian: Анна Анатольевна Леванди (Кондрашова), born 30 June 1965 in Moscow) is a Russian figure skater who represented the Soviet Union in international competition. She was the 1984 World silver medalist and four-time European bronze medalist. She competed at two Winter Olympic Games.
Following her marriage, she took her husband's surname and moved to Estonia. She works as a coach in Tallinn.
Kondrashova began competing at senior ISU events in 1983.
She won the silver medal at the 1984 World Figure Skating Championships, which was a controversial result and had the Canadian crowd booing. She did however produce three clean triples in her free programme: two toe-loops and a triple loop. She won four bronze medalists at the European Figure Skating Championships: in 1984, and from 1986 through 1988.
She represented the Soviet Union at the 1984 Winter Olympics, where she placed 5th, and the Soviet Union at the 1988 Winter Olympics, where she placed 8th. She retired from competitive skating following that season.
Levandi works as a coach and choreographer at Anna Levandi Figure Skating Club in Tallinn. Among her current and former students and choreography clients are Johanna Allik, Jasmine Alexandra Costa, Alisa Drei, Jelena Glebova, Mari Hirvonen, Christian Horvath Svetlana Issakova, Taru Karvosenoja, Viktor Romanenkov, Viktoria Shklover & Valdis Mintals, and Dmitri Tchumak.
