Dana Denise Vollmer (born November 13, 1987) is an American swimmer and Olympic gold medalist. At the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens, Greece she won a gold medal in the 4×200-meter freestyle relay with Natalie Coughlin, Kaitlin Sandeno, and Carly Piper that set the world record in the event.

She has won a total of twenty-seven medals in major international competition, fifteen gold, eight silver, and four bronze spanning the Olympics, the World Championships, the Pan American Games, the Pan Pacific Championships, and the Goodwill Games.

Dana is engaged to Andy Grant.
