Gary Norman Hurring (born 10 October 1961 in Auckland) is a former swimmer from New Zealand, who won the gold medal at the 1978 Commonwealth Games in the men's 200 metres backstroke. He gained silver in the same event at the 1978 World Aquatics Championships.
Hurring was considered a possible medallist for the 1980 Summer Olympics but was denied the opportunity due to the boycott by the majority of New Zealand Olympic sports associations. At the 1984 Summer Olympics he just missed medals in both backstroke events finishing fourth in the 100m and fifth in the 200m.
Hurring is the son of two former Olympic backstroke swimmers, Lincoln Hurring and Jean Stewart, who won the bronze medal in the women's 100 metres backstroke at the 1952 Summer Olympics in Helsinki, Finland.
