Yuri Kudinov (or Yuriy Kudinov or in Russian Юрий Кудинов) (born 27 February 1979 in Volgograd) from Kazakhstan, although he previously represented Russia at several world championship events and European Championships. He was inducted in the International Marathon Swimming Hall of Fame in 2009 and continues to swim at the world-class level including representation of Kazakhstan at the Olympic 10K Marathon Swim at the 2012 London Olympic Games.

In 2007 he narrowly missed the world record for the fastest swim across the English Channel when he was beaten by Petar Stoychev who was swimming on the same day only minutes ahead of him on 24 August 2007. He completed his swim in 7 hours 5 minutes 42 seconds for the third fastest crossing of all time.

Earlier in the same year on 25 March, Kudinov beat Stoychev in the 25 km at the 2007 World Swimming Championships in Melbourne, Australia, a race which he won in 5 hours 16 minutes.

He participated in the 2011 FINA World Championships in Shanghai, China. As a swimmer representing Russia, Kudinov won a gold medal in the 25 km race at the 2000 World Open Water Swimming Championships, at the 2001 World Swimming Championships, at the 2002 World Open Water Swimming Championships, at the 2003 World Swimming Championships and at the 2007 World Swimming Championships as well as the silver medal in the 2004 World Open Water Swimming Championships and at the 2006 World Open Water Swimming Championships. He also won a bronze at the 2008 World Open Water Swimming Championships and the gold at the 5th Asian Open Water Swimming Championships in the 5 km in Hong Kong in 2012.
