Sergey Smiryagin (Russian: Серге́й Смирягин; born 27 October 1963) is a Russian former freestyle swimmer. He competed at the 1980 Summer Olympics in the 100 m freestyle, but failed to reach the final.[1]

After the Olympics he won three European titles and three silver medals at the world championships,[2] as well as a gold medal at the 1983 Summer Universiade.[3] He missed the 1984 Summer Olympics due to their boycott by the Soviet Union and competed in the Friendship Games instead, winning three gold medals.
