Stephanie W. Elkins (born c. 1963)[1] is an American former competition swimmer who won a gold medal in the 4×100-meter freestyle relay at the 1978 World Aquatics Championships,[2] setting a new world record. She won another gold medal in the same event at the 1979 Pan American Games. She qualified for the 1980 Summer Olympics, again in the 4×100-meter freestyle, but could not participate due to the boycott of the Moscow Olympics led by the United States.[3][4]

Elkins attended Stanford University, and swam for the Stanford Cardinal swimming and diving team in National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) competition. She graduated from Stanford with a bachelor's degree in organizational behavior, and since 1985 worked in sale and leasing of office and R&D buildings. She is a vice president of Colliers International.[3]
