Paweł Januszewski (born January 2, 1972 in Pyrzyce) is a retired hurdler from Poland, who is best known for winning the gold medal at the 1998 European Championships. A gold medalist at the 1999 Summer Universiade, he represented his native country in two consecutive Summer Olympics (1996 and 2000), reaching the final on the second occasion. In addition, he competed at four World Championships, qualifying for the final in 1999 and 2001.
He set his personal best (48.17s) in the men's 400 metres hurdles on August 20, 1998 in his winning race in Budapest, Hungary. It was the national record until 2007, when the mark was bettered by Marek Plawgo, and remains the second best result by a Polish athlete.
