Iryna Kryuko (Belarusian: Ірына Крыўко; Russian: Ирина Валерьевна Кривко; born 30 July 1991) is a Belarusian biathlete. She won a gold medal in the 4×6 km relay at the 2018 Olympics. She also competed in the 2014/15 world cup season, and represented Belarus at the Biathlon World Championships 2015 in Kontiolahti.
Kryuko's parents divorced soon after her birth, hence she and her younger brother Victor were raised by their mother. Iryna took up biathlon aged 11, by chance – after their house burned down in a fire, the family moved to a dormitory next to a biathlon training base. Her brother followed her and also became an international biathlon competitor. Iryna debuted internationally at the 2009 World Junior Championships, where she placed fourth individually. In 2011 she was included into the senior national team.
