Fleur Maxwell (born 5 August 1988) is a Luxembourgian figure skater. She competed at the 2006 Winter Olympics and has won eight senior international medals. Her highest ISU Championship result is 14th, achieved at the 2005 European Championships.


Maxwell started skating at the age of nine.[1] She debuted on the junior international level in the 2002–03 season. Ranked 32nd at the 2003 World Junior Championships, she placed 18th the following year in The Hague, Netherlands.

Maxwell won the silver medal at the 2004 International Challenge Cup, her senior international debut. Her first senior ISU Championship was the 2005 European Championships in Turin, Italy. She finished 14th at the event and then 29th at the 2005 World Championships. At the Karl Schäfer Memorial in October 2005, Maxwell won the bronze medal and qualified to compete at the Olympics in Turin. As the only Luxembourg competitor at the 2006 Winter Olympics, she was the flag bearer for her country. Placing 21st in the short program, she qualified for the free skate and finished 24th overall in ladies' singles. She then retired from competitive skating.

Maxwell returned to competition in the 2009–10 season.[2] She did not qualify for the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver or the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi but won medals at the Istanbul Cup, Slovenia Open, Ukrainian Open, Denkova-Staviski Cup, and NRW Trophy.

Minor planet 255019 Fleurmaxwell (discovered by M.Dawson) was named in her honour.
