Seraina Prünte (born August 16, 1987) is a Swiss former swimmer, who specialized in freestyle events. She currently holds a Swiss record in the 100 m freestyle (56.06) from the German Olympic Trials in Berlin (2008). A single-time Olympian (2004), Prunte played for the Nikar Swimming Club (German: Schwimmverein Nikar) in Heidelberg, before she trained under head coach Dirk Reinecke as part of the Swiss national team.
Prunte qualified for the women's 4×100 m freestyle relay, as Switzerland's youngest swimmer (aged 16), at the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens. Teaming with Dominique Diezi, Marjorie Sagne, and Nicole Zahnd in heat two, Prunte swam a third leg and recorded a split of 58.16, but the Swiss women settled only for seventh place and fifteenth overall in a final time of 3:48.61.
