Aleksandr Andreyevich Shustov (Template:Lang-ru), born 29 June 1984) is a male high jumper from Russia, best known for winning the gold medal in the men's high jump at the 2007 Summer Universiade in Bangkok, Thailand. On 29 July at the 2010 European Athletics Championships in Barcelona, Spain (that was held at the Estadi Olímpic Lluís Companys) he achieved his personal best (2.33 metres) and won gold medal.
Shustov began the 2011 indoor season by winning the Lukashevich Memorial in Cheliabinsk on 9 January, with a first attempt clearance of 2.27: two others also cleared 2.27, but they required two attempts. At the end of the month, he won the opening leg of the 7th annual Moravia High Jump Tour in the Czech Republic at Třinec on 26 January. He and fellow Russian Sergey Mudrov both cleared 2.29 m, with Shustov awarded the win based on his one miss at his first try at the winning height, while Mudrov needed all three attempts to clear 2.29. At the second stop on the Tour at Hustopece, Russians swept the top four places, with Shustov's 2.30 placing third, to Aleksei Dmitrik's 2.32, and Ivan Ukhov's world-leading 2.38. At the Moscow High Jump Cup on 3 February, Shustov finished tied for second at 2.27, behind Ukhov's winning 2.30.
