Tatyana Vasilyevna Kalmykova (Russian: Татьяна Васильевна Калмыкова; born January 10, 1990) is a female Russian race walker. She represented Russia at the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing, and competed in the women's 20 km race walk, along with her teammates Tatyana Sibileva and Olga Kaniskina, who eventually won the gold medal for this event. In spite of tumultuous rains, Kalmykova did not hinder her chances of racing around a 20 km walk; however, she received a final warning (a total of three red cards) for not following the proper form during the 14 km lap, and was subsequently disqualified.
