Vita Palamar (Ukrainian: Віта Паламар; born 12 October 1977 in Khmelnytskyi, Soviet Union) is a female high jumper from Ukraine.


Her personal best jump is 2.01 metres, achieved in Zürich in August 2003. She set an indoor best of 1.96 m to win the Hochsprung mit Musik in 2001.

On 17 November 2016, the IOC disqualified Palamar from the 2008 Olympic Games and struck her results from the record for failing a drugs test in a re-analysis of her doping sample from 2008.[1]

In May 2017, she was disqualified for two years.[2]
