Boris Yakovlevich Dubrovsky (Russian: Борис Яковлевич Дубровский, born 8 October 1939) is a retired Russian rower who had his best achievements in the double sculls, partnering with Oleg Tyurin. In this event, they won an Olympic gold in 1964[1] and four medals at European and world championships in 1962–1965.[2][3]


Dubrovsky was born to teachers Yakov Vasilievich Dubrovsky (1903–?) and Natalya Timofeevna Kuvaeva (1909–?) and has a sister Masha (born 1941). He has a PhD in theoretical physics, and from 1967 to 2003 taught calculus in a university. There he met his wife, Evgeniya Aleksandrovna, a mathematician. They have a son, Timofei (born 1964), who moved to the United States in the 1990s.[4]
