Cyrus Charles Young (July 23, 1928 – December 6, 2017) was an American athlete. He was born in Modesto, California. He competed mainly in the javelin throw.

He was the first non-European man to win the gold medal in the javelin throw in the Olympics in 1952, and – through the 2012 London Olympics – he remains the only American male to earn Olympic gold in the event.
