Mateusz Sawrymowicz (born 22 April 1987 in Lublin) is a Polish swimmer who specializes in the 1500 m freestyle. Having won in Melbourne in 2007 he became the first person to beat Grant Hackett at the 1500 m in the World Championships for 10 years. Later in the year in Debrecen, he became the first person to beat Yury Prilukov in the European Short Course Championships for 5 years.

Sawrymowicz originally touched 4th at the 2012 World Short Course Championships in Istanbul, and was later awarded a bronze medal after the disqualification of Mads Glaesner, the gold medalist, for an anti-doping violation.

However, upon appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport, Glaesner's 1500-meter freestyle gold medal was reinstated based on the fact that a test after that race, two days after his initial positive test following the 400-meter free, was clean. He still forfeited the 400-meter freestyle bronze, which he did not appeal. This means that Sawrymowicz's official position was returned to 4th place in the 1500-meter freestyle.
