Natalya Valeryevna Bochina (Russian: Наталья Валерьевна Бочина) (born January 4, 1962) is a retired Soviet athlete, who competed mainly in the 200 metres. Bochina trained at Dynamo in Leningrad.

Bochina was born in St. Petersburg and was relatively young, at 18 years of age, when she competed for the USSR in the 1980 Summer Olympics held in Moscow, Soviet Union. However, she proved to the world just how fast she was in the 200 m final by just claiming the silver medal in a time of 22.19 seconds. She then helped her teammates Vera Komisova, Lyudmila Maslakova and Vera Anisimova to the silver medal in the 4 × 100 metres relay.
