Tatiana Martine Bvegadzi (born January 30, 1979 in Brazzaville) is a Congolese judoka, who competed in the women's heavyweight category. She picked up a bronze medal in the over-78 kg division at the 2004 African Judo Championships in Tunis, Tunisia, and represented the Republic of the Congo at the 2004 Summer Olympics.

Bvegadzi qualified as a lone judoka for the Congolese squad in the women's heavyweight class (+78 kg) at the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens, by placing third and receiving a berth from the African Championships in Tunis. She lost her opening match to Cuban judoka and eventual silver medalist Daima Beltr├ín, who quickly pinned and subdued her on the tatami with an ashi guruma (leg wheel) throw in forty-three seconds. Bvegadzi gave herself a chance for Congo's first Olympic medal at these Games through the repechage, but came up short in another defeat to Great Britain's Karina Bryant by an ippon and a tsuri goshi (lifting hip throw) nearly two minutes into their first playoff of the draft.
