Svetlana Mikhailovna Pospelova (Russian: Светлана Михайловна Поспелова; born December 24, 1979 in Saint Petersburg) is a Russian sprinter who primarily competes over 400 metres.

She was banned from competing in 2000 after she failed an out-of-competition test at the 2000 Summer Olympics. She received a two-year ban from the sport for the positive test for stanozolol.[1]
