Dwayne Eugene Evans (born October 13, 1958) is an American athlete who mainly competed in the 200 meters.
He competed for the United States in the 1976 Summer Olympics held in Montreal, Canada, where he won the bronze medal in the men's 200 metres event. That same year, he had just graduated from South Mountain High School in Phoenix, Arizona. That year he also set the still standing NFHS national high school records in the 220 yard dash at 20.5. The federation converted record-keeping to metric distances shortly afterward. He was Track and Field News "High School Athlete of the Year" in 1976. He continued to run, achieving his PR of 20.08 in 1987.
