Kliment Andreyevich Kolesnikov (Russian: Климент Андреевич Колесников; IPA: [klʲɪˈmʲent kɐˈlʲesʲnʲɪkəf]; born 9 July 2000) is a Russian swimmer. He holds world junior records in eight events: 50/100/200 back in long course, as well as 200 free, 50/100/200 back and 100 IM in short course.

He made his debut at the 2017 World Aquatics Championships, where he competed in three backstroke events and set two world junior records.
