Tania Modra, OAM (born 14 January 1975) is an Australian Paralympic tandem cycling pilot. She was born in Port Lincoln, South Australia. Eighteen months before the 2000 Sydney Games, her brother, visually impaired Paralympic tandem cyclist Kieran Modra, introduced her to tandem cyclist Sarnya Parker, despite Modra's lack of competitive cycling experience, and she became Parker's pilot. She won two gold medals at the Sydney Paralympics with Parker in the Women's 1 km Time Trial Tandem open and Women's Individual Pursuit Tandem open events, for which she received a Medal of the Order of Australia; the pair broke the world record in both events.
