Walter Pierce Richardson (born April 1, 1943) is an American former competition swimmer and former world record-holder. Richardson competed in the 1964 Summer Olympics in Tokyo, Japan, where he swam the butterfly leg for the gold medal-winning U.S. team in the preliminary heats of the men's 4×100-meter medley relay. He did not receive a medal because only those swimmers who competed in the event final were medal-eligible under the 1964 Olympic rules.
