Sergey Aleksandrovich Yung (Russian: Серге́й Александрович Юнг; born 10 August 1955) is a Russian former race walker who competed for the Soviet Union. He specialised in the 50 kilometres race walk.

Yung set his personal best of 3:47:16 hours for the event in Moscow in 1982.[1] He competed at the 1982 European Athletics Championships and placed tenth overall.[2]

The 1983 season saw his greatest successes.
