Herman Kruusenberg (23 July 1898 – 5 June 1970) was a Greco-Roman wrestler from Estonia who competed in the light heavyweight event at the 1920 Summer Olympics.[1]

Kruusenberg was born to a farmer, and worked on the family farm through all his life. He never trained in a club, and learned wrestling from Georg Lurich, who was born nearby and taught local boys when visiting his parents. Kruusenberg won the Estonian titles in 1921–1923 and placed third at the 1923 Baltic Championships.[1]
