Wayne Robert Anderson (born April 4, 1945) is an American former competition swimmer.

Anderson represented the United States as a 19-year-old at the 1964 Summer Olympics in Tokyo.[1] He competed in the men's 200-meter breaststroke, and finished seventh overall in the event final with a time of 2:35.0.[1][2]

Anderson attended the University of Southern California (USC), where he swam for the USC Trojans swimming and diving team in National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) competition from 1965 to 1967. He was a six-time All-American as a college swimmer—three straight years in both the 100-yard and 200-yard breaststroke.[3]
