Stacy Renée Dragila (nee Mikaelsen) (1971-) is an American former pole vaulter.

She won the first gold medal in women's pole vaulting at the 2000 Summer Olympics. She was also a two-time world outdoor champion (1999, 2001), the 1997 world indoor champion, a multi-time world record setter, and a 2-time Jesse Owens Award winner (2000, 2001). Her best mark in the pole vault is 4.83 metres, set in Ostrava in 2004.

Despite being the defending champion in the pole vault, Dragila failed to make it out of the qualifying round in the 2004 Summer Olympics. Dragila resides in Pocatello, Idaho and serves as an assistant coach for Idaho State's track and field team.

She made the 2009 World Championships in Athletics her final major championship and she finished with a jump of 4.25 m, not progressing to the pole vault final.[1] Dragila was one of the foremost athletes in the early years of women's pole vaulting, winning the gold medal at the first three major pole vaulting championships. Her best vault of 4.83 m set in 2004 was significantly higher than other female vaulters of her generation.[2]
