Katarína Listopadová (born March 22, 1993 in Bratislava) is a Slovak swimmer, who specialized in freestyle, butterfly, and individual medley events.[1][2] She currently holds four Slovak records in the freestyle relays (both 400 and 800 m).[3] Listopadova is also a resident athlete for J&T Sport Team Bratislava, and is coached and trained by Gabriel Baran.[1]

Listopadova made her international debut at the 2010 Summer Youth Olympics in Singapore, where she placed fourth in the 100 m freestyle (56.90), 50 m butterfly (27.38), and 100 m butterfly (1:00.35).[4][5]

At the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, Listopadova qualified as Slovakia's youngest athlete and swimmer for the women's 200 m individual medley. She posted a FINA B-standard entry time of 2:16.42 from the Budapest Open in Hungary.[6] She topped the first heat by more than half a second (0.50) ahead of Olympic veterans Cheng Wan-jung of Chinese Taipei and Emilia Pikkarainen of Finland, outside her entry time of 2:16.81. Listopadova failed to advance into the semifinals, as she shared a twenty-eighth place tie with Iceland's Eygló Ósk Gústafsdóttir in the preliminaries.[7]
