German Anatolyevich Skurygin (Russian: Герман Анатольевич Скурыгин; September 15, 1963 – November 28, 2008) was a Russian race walker. He was born in Vutno.


He originally won a gold medal at the 1999 World Championships, but later lost it due to doping. He was suspended from 1999 to 2001. Like dozens of other elite Russian race walkers suspended for doping, he was coached by Viktor Chegin. He died of a heart attack at 45.
