Patrick Stevens (born July 15, 1979 in Alphen aan den Rijn) is a Dutch taekwondo practitioner, who competed in the men's welterweight category.[1] He yielded three medals (one silver and two bronze) in the 84-kg division at the European Championships between 2002 and 2005, and represented his nation Netherlands at the 2004 Summer Olympics.[2][3]

Stevens qualified for the two-member Dutch taekwondo squad in the men's welterweight class (80 kg) at the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens, by placing third and granting a berth from the European Olympic Qualifying Tournament in Baku, Azerbaijan.[4] He crashed out in the opening match to the French taekwondo jin Christophe Negrel with a score of 10–13. With Negrel being defeated by Azerbaijan's Rashad Ahmadov in the quarterfinal, Stevens denied his chance to compete for the Olympic bronze medal through the repechage.[3][5][6]
