Eleanor A. Garatti (July 12, 1909 – September 9, 1998), later known by her married name Eleanor Saville, was an American competition swimmer, Olympic gold medalist, and former world record-holder.
Garatti represented the United States at the 1928 and 1932 Summer Olympics in the 100-meter freestyle and the 4×100-meter freestyle relay. She won a silver and a bronze medal in the 100-meter freestyle, becoming the first woman to win two Olympic medals in the event.

In 1929, Garatti set one more world record, in the individual 100-meter freestyle, becoming the first woman to swim under 1:10.
