Esteban Bustos Rodríguez (born December 17, 1992 in Santiago) is a modern pentathlete from Chile.[1][2] He won a bronze medal at the 2011 Pan American Games in Guadalajara, Mexico, and received an automatic qualifying berth for the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, following the footsteps of his brother Cristián, who had previously competed in Beijing, four years before.[3][4]

Bustos was selected to be one of the thirty-six athletes to participate in the men's modern pentathlon. During the competition, Bustos performed disastrously at the initial stages, with fair scores in a one-touch épée fencing, and 200 m freestyle swimming, but maintained his pace for the tenth position in horse-riding and newly combined running and laser shooting. After completing all the segments, Bustos finished eighteenth in the men's event at his first Olympics.
