Anna Fugina is an American open water swimmer from Florida who was the first person to successfully swim around Key West, the southernmost point of the continental U.S.A. Her swim was the catalyst of the 12.5-mile Swim Around Key West race organized by Bill Welzien.

Fugina had suffered injuries from a car accident and used swimming as therapy to assist in recovery. On 4 July 1977, she took roughly 12 hours to finish the circumnavigation around Key West. In 1978, she finished in eight hours. She completed the 37 annual Swim Around Key West in a relay in 7 hours 32 minutes.
