Cornelius H. "Corrie" Gardner (12 March 1879 – 6 August 1960) was an Australian track and field athlete who competed in the 1904 Summer Olympics. He participated in the long jump competition but his result is unknown. He also ran in the 110 metre hurdles event but was eliminated in the first round.

He also played Australian rules football, where he used his pace and running skills on the wing for the Essendon Football Club in 1898 and the Melbourne Football Club between 1900 and 1905. He was a member of Melbourne's first premiership side in 1900.[1] His brother Eric also played for Melbourne,[2] but missed playing in the premiership side due to injury.[1]
