Pieter Badenhorst is a paralympic athlete from South Africa competing mainly in category T46 sprint events.

Pieter competed in three paralympics starting with the 1992 Summer Paralympics and continuing through the 1996 and 2000 games. The 1992 games proved successful in that as well as competing in the triple jump he won a gold medal in the 400m and it took a world record from Poland's Jerzy Szelezak to deny him a second gold in the 200m. Pieter's other two games appearances were not as successful as he won no further medals despite competing in the 100m, 200m and long jump in 1996 and the 100m and 200m in 2000. [1]
