Paul Field (born 24 June 1967) is an English bobsledder who competed in the early 1990s. Competing in two Winter Olympics, he earned his best finish of seventh in the four-man event at Albertville in 1992. He is also well known as the 1994 UK Gladiators men's champion, as well as the runner-up in the first International Gladiators competition behind America's Wesley Two Scoops Berry, albeit in controversial circumstances following a severe albeit unintentional tackle by American gladiator Hawk, during the Powerball event in the Grand Final. Because of his successful achievements and all-round good sportsmanship, he is still highly regarded amongst fans of the series, and is known as one of the greatest contenders in the history of Gladiators as a global franchise, especially during its mid '90s heyday.

Paul Field grew up in Hemel Hempstead where he competed for Dacorum Athletics Club. In the 1980s he was the third ranked British decathlete behind Daley Thompson. Paul still lives in Hemel Hempstead with his wife and 3 children.
