Toomas "Tom" Arusoo (born July 22, 1948) is a Canadian former competition swimmer who swam in the 1968 Summer Olympics in Mexico City. Aruso was a member of Canada's seventh-place 4x100-metre medley relay team, swimming the butterfly leg. He also competed in the preliminary heats of the 100 and 200-metre butterfly events.[1]

He attended the University of Michigan, where he swam for the Michigan Wolverines swimming and diving team in National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) and Big Ten Conference competition.

At the 1970 Commonwealth Games in Edinburgh, Scotland, Arusoo won two medals while representing Canada: a gold medal in the 200-metre butterfly (2:08.97), and a silver medal in the 100-metre butterfly (58.98 seconds).
