Douglas Dale Northway (born April 28, 1955) is an American former swimmer who represented the United States at two consecutive Olympic Games. As a 17-year-old at the 1972 Summer Olympics in Munich, Germany, Northway received a bronze medal for his third-place performance in the men's 1,500-meter freestyle (16:09.25). Four years later at the 1976 Summer Olympics in Montreal, Quebec, he swam for the gold medal-winning U.S. team in the preliminary heats of the men's 4×200-meter freestyle relay. He did not receive a medal for his 1976 relay effort, however, because only relay swimmers who competed in the event final were medal-eligible under the rules then in effect.
