Hana Majaj (Arabic: هناء مجاج‎; born September 14, 1982) is a Jordanian former swimmer, who specialized in butterfly events.[1] She represented Jordan at the 2000 Summer Olympics, and also trained for the BYU Cougars swimming and diving team at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah.[2]

Majaj competed only in the women's 200 m butterfly at the 2000 Summer Olympics in Sydney. She received a ticket from FINA, under a Universality program, without meeting an entry time.[3] She participated in heat one against three other swimmers Chan Wing Suet of Hong Kong, Tinka Dančević of Croatia, and Ana Carolina Aguilera of Argentina. She rounded out a small field to last place in a lifetime best of 2:31.78, the slowest of all in the heats. Majaj failed to advance into the semifinals, as she placed thirty-sixth overall in the prelims.[4][5]
