Troy Douglas (born November 30, 1962 in Paget, Bermuda) is a former Dutch sprinter. Originally competing for Bermuda, he finished second at the 1995 IAAF World Indoor Championships in the 200 metres event, but he changed nationality to the Netherlands some time after. For Bermuda he participated at the 1988, 1992 and 1996 Summer Olympics, reaching the semi finals on the 200 metres in 1996 as well as the semi finals on the 400 metres in 1992 and 1996.
Set to compete in the 1999 World Championships, Douglas was withdrawn after testing positive for the banned anabolic steroid nandrolone. After his suspension he ran his personal best times over 100 metres and 200 metres in 2001 as well as two masters world records on the same distances in 2003. Together with Patrick van Balkom, Timothy Beck and Caimin Douglas he won a bronze medal in 4×100 metres relay at the 2003 World Championships in Athletics. They also participated with the same team in the 2004 Summer Olympics, but were eliminated in the series due to a mistake in an exchange.
