Natalia Vladimirovna Linichuk (Russian: Наталья Владимировна Линичук (help·info); born February 6, 1956 in Moscow) is a Russian former competitive ice dancer and current ice dancing coach. With partner Gennadi Karponosov, she was the 1980 ice dancing Olympic champion and two-time World champion. They skated for the Soviet Union throughout their competitive careers.
Linichuk and Karponosov were coached by Elena Tchaikovskaia at Dynamo in Moscow. They won the World Universiade in 1972, and were bronze medalists at the 1974 and 1977 World Championships. They also finished 4th at the 1976 Winter Olympics, the year ice dancing was introduced as an Olympic sport.

After coaching in Moscow, Linichuk and Karponosov moved to the U.S. in the early '90s and coached at the University of Delaware in Newark, Delaware. In September 2007, they moved to the Ice Works Skating Complex in Aston, Pennsylvania.
