Lincoln William Norman Hurring (15 September 1931 - 21 April 1993 in Dunedin) was a swimmer from New Zealand. He won two silver medals at the 1954 British Empire Games - one in the men's 110 yards backstroke and another in the men's 330 yards medley relay. He represented his native country at two consecutive Summer Olympics, 1952 and 1956. He became a swimming coach, and gave TV commentaries on several Olympics.
In 1957 Hurring married fellow swimmer Jean Stewart, who won the bronze medal in the women's 100 metres backstroke in 1952. Their son, Gary Hurring, won a Commonwealth Games gold medal and a world championship silver.
From 1954 Lincoln and Jean coached swimming at Three Kings School in Auckland, and in 1975 they moved to the Takapuna Municipal Pool.
In 1993, aged 61, he collapsed and died on Milford Beach, Auckland from a heart attack.
