Connor Evan Fields (born September 14, 1992) is an American professional BMX racer. He represented the United States at the 2012 Summer Olympics in the men's BMX event and finished 7th overall. He represented the United States again at the 2016 Summer Olympics in the men's BMX event. He won the gold medal in Rio de Janeiro, and became the first American to win an Olympic BMX gold.

In the semifinals of the 2020 Summer Olympics BMX event, Fields suffered a horrific crash off a jump heading into the first turn in the third run and failed to complete the trial.
