Gheorghiță Ștefan (also known as Ștefan Gheorghiță, born January 17, 1986 in Bucharest) is a male freestyle wrestler from Romania. He participated in men's freestyle 74 kg at 2008 Summer Olympics. He lost the bronze medal fight against Murad Gaidarov. However, after a positive doping test Soslan Tigiev of Uzbekistan was in November 2016 stripped of the silver medal. Ștefan Gheorghiță was therefore moved up to a bronze medal position.

In 2016, he married Romanian judoka Corina Căprioriu.[1][2]
