Aleksandar Miladinovski (Macedonian: Александар Миладиновски; born August 4, 1979) is a Macedonian former swimmer, who specialized in butterfly and individual medley events. He represented the Republic of Macedonia in two editions of the Olympic Games (2000 and 2004), and held five Macedonian records in the butterfly (50 and 100 m) and individual medley (100 and 200 m).

Miladinovski made his first Macedonian team at the 2000 Summer Olympics in Sydney. There, he failed to advance into the semifinals in any of his individual events, finishing forty-first in the 100 m butterfly (55.62), and thirty-eighth in the 200 m individual medley (2:07.45).

At the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens, Miladinovski maintained his program, competing again in two swimming events. He cleared FINA B-standard entry times of 55.23 (100 m butterfly) and 2:07.38 (200 m individual medley) from the World Championships in Barcelona, Spain. In the 200 m individual medley, Miladinovski challenged seven other swimmers in heat two, including Olympic veterans Orel Oral of Turkey and Oleg Pukhnatiy of Uzbekistan. He raced to third place and thirty-eighth overall by 0.26 of a second ahead of Cayman Islands' Andrew Mackay in 2:07.39. In the 100 m butterfly, Miladinovski placed forty-fifth overall on the morning's preliminaries. Swimming in heat three, he edged out Peru's Juan Pablo Valdivieso to notch a fifth spot by 0.27 of a second in 55.71. He started working at Wellington College International Shanghai at 2014 as Head of Aquatics.
