Urška Žolnir (born 9 October 1981) is a Slovenian judoka. She's a member of Judo Club Sankaku Celje. She is the first Slovenian female Olympic gold winner.[1]

She won the bronze medal in the half-middleweight (–63 kg) division at the 2004 Summer Olympics and gold medal at the 2012 Olympics in the same division.[2][3] That makes her the most successful Slovenian judoka of all time.

She was the Slovenian flagbearer at the Beijing 2008 Olympics.
