Katrin Borchert (born 4 November 1969) is a German-born Australian sprint canoeist who competed from the late 1980s to 2001. Competing in three Summer Olympics, she won three medals with one silver (1992: K-4 500 m for Germany) and two bronzes (both Australia, 1996: K-2 500 m, 2000: K-1 500 m).

Borchert emigrated to Australia in February 1994. She won K-2 500 m and K-2 1000 m events at the 1998 World Championships in Hungary with Anna Wood. They won the K-2 1000 m world champion title in 1999. Borchert would win a total of twenty medals at the ICF Canoe Sprint World Championships with nine golds for four different countries (1989 for East Germany, 1990 for West Germany, 1991-3 for Germany, and 1994-2001 for Australia). At the Sydney Olympics the pairing finished sixth in the K-2 500 m, while she won bronze in the K-1 500 m event.

In 2009 Borchert was inducted into the Queensland Sport Hall of Fame.[1]
