Latoya Greaves (born May 31, 1986) is a Jamaican hurdler. At the 2012 Summer Olympics, she was due to compete in the Women's 100 metres hurdles but did not start due to injury.[1]

Greaves achieved much success in regional age category competitions. After a runner-up finish in the 100 metres hurdles at the 2001 CARIFTA Games (youth section), she returned the year after to win a 100/300 m hurdles double at the 2002 CARIFTA Games. After moving into the junior (under 20) category, she won two straight 100 m hurdles titles at the 2004 CARIFTA Games and 2005 CARIFTA Games.[2][3]

She was a double relay medallist in the youth section at the 2002 Central American and Caribbean Junior Championships in Athletics, including a championship record in the 4 × 100 m relay alongside Shelly-Ann Fraser, Anneisha McLaughlin and Diane Dietrich.[4] She further established herself individually with a gold medal in the hurdles at the 2005 Pan American Junior Athletics Championships.[5] Her last international age category medal came at the 2008 NACAC Under-23 Championships in Athletics, where she was behind Americans Tiffany Ofili and Kristi Castlin.[6]
