Anna Sztankovics (born January 10, 1996 in Budapest) is a Hungarian swimmer, who specializes in the breaststroke events. She won two gold medals in the 100 m breaststroke at the 2011 European Junior Swimming Championships in Belgrade, Serbia, and at the 2012 European Junior Swimming Championships in Antwerp, Belgium. Sztankovics is a member of Jövő Swimming Club in Budapest, and is coached and trained by Balazs Virth.

Sztankovics qualified for three swimming events at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, by eclipsing FINA B-standard entry times of 1:09.31 (100 m breaststroke) and 2:30.26 (200 m breaststroke) from the European Championships. In the 100 m breaststroke, Sztankovics challenged seven other swimmers on the second heat, including two-time Olympian Danielle Beaubrun of St. Lucia. She cruised to second place and thirty-first overall by two hundredths of a second (0.02) behind Slovenia's Tjasa Vozel in 1:09.65. In the 200 m breaststroke, Sztankovics picked up another second spot in heat one behind three-time Olympian Alia Atkinson of Jamaica by less than 0.10 of a second, in her lifetime best of 2:29.67. Sztankovics failed to advance into the semifinals, as she placed twenty-ninth overall in the preliminaries.

Sztankovics also teamed up with Zsuzsanna Jakabos, Evelyn Verrasztó, and Eszter Dara in the 4 × 100 m medley relay. Swimming the breaststroke leg, Sztankovics recorded a split of 1:17.43.
