Curtis Charles "Curt" Stone (born November 19, 1922) is a retired long-distance runner from the United States. He represented his native country in three consecutive Summer Olympics, starting in 1948. He was born in Brooklyn, Pennsylvania.
Stone was affiliated with Pennsylvania State University. During the 3,000m Steeplechase at the 1951 Pan American Games, Stone was easily ahead but slowed on the final straightaway to allow teammate Browning Ross to catch up. The two crossed the finish line hand in hand forcing a tie for first place. Argentine officials debated whether to disqualify the pair but ultimately let the results stand, ranking Stone as first after a close examination of the finish photograph.
