Alexandra Ivanovna Zabelina (Russian: Александра Ивановна Забелина, born 11 March 1937) is a retired Soviet fencer. She won gold medals in the team foil at the 1960, 1968 and 1972 Summer Olympics.

Between 1956 and 1971 Zabelina won eight team and two individual world titles in the foil. She won the individual Silver Prize at the 1961 and 1966 world championships and team Silver Prize in 1959, 1962, 1967 and 1969. She missed the 1964 Summer Olympics because she was expecting her son.
