Colin Cunningham (born 15 September 1954) is an English former freestyle and backstroke swimmer who represented Great Britain at the 1972 Summer Olympics. There he competed in the individual 100-metre and 200-metre backstroke. Cunningham was also a member of the relay teams in the 4×200-metre freestyle and 4×100-metre medley.

Colin Cunningham was a swimming coach for Rotherham Metro ASC and was the clubs chief coach until 2005 when the council didn't want to support the swimming club. The club then decided to run it on their own through volunteers and now a new chief coach is in charge with Colin coaching "B" Squad, seniors and masters.[citation needed]

He is now currently head coach at Sheffield City Swimming Club as of January 2010.
