Shingo Suetsugu (末續 慎吾, Suetsugu Shingo?, born June 2, 1980 in Kumamoto) is a Japanese sprinter.[1] He is the former Asian record holder in the 200 metres and 4×100 metres relay.[2]

Suetsugu won a bronze medal in the 200 metres event at the 2003 IAAF World Championships in a time of 20.38 seconds. The same year he set an Asian record of 20.03 seconds at the Japanese national championships, also won the 100 metres in 10.13 seconds.[3] Participating in the 2004 Summer Olympics, he reached the second-round in the 100 metres.

Suetsugu represented Japan at the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing. He competed at the 4×100 metres relay together with Naoki Tsukahara, Shinji Takahira and Nobuharu Asahara. In their qualification heat they placed second in behind Trinidad and Tobago, but in front of the Netherlands and Brazil. Their time of 38.52 was the third fastest out of sixteen participating nations in the first round and they qualified for the final. There they sprinted to a time of 38.15 seconds, the third time after the Jamaican and Trinidad teams, winning the bronze medal.[1] He also took part in the 200 metres individual, finishing sixth in his first round heat, with a time of 20.93 seconds, which was not enough to qualify for the second round.[1]
