Kwon You-ri (also Gwon Yu-ri, Korean: 권 유리; born July 30, 1989) is a South Korean swimmer, who specialized in long-distance freestyle and butterfly events.[1] She is a fourth-place finalist in the 200 m butterfly at the 2006 Asian Games in Doha, Qatar.[2]

Kwon qualified for two swimming events, as South Korea's youngest female swimmer (aged 15), at the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens. She eclipsed FINA B-standard entry times of 8:56.56 (800 m freestyle) and 2:11.59 (200 m butterfly) from the Dong-A Swimming Tournament in Seoul.[3][4][5] In the 200 m butterfly, Kwon challenged seven other swimmers on the second heat, including top medal favorite Éva Risztov of Hungary. She rounded out the field to last place and twenty-fourth overall by a 3.81-second margin behind Risztov in 2:14.30.[6][7] In her second event, 800 m freestyle, Kwon placed twenty-second overall on the morning prelims. Swimming in heat one, she edged out fellow 15-year-old Jelena Petrova of Estonia to pick up a second seed by two tenths of a second (0.20) with a time of 9:01.42.[8][9]
