Tania Cagnotto is a diver competing at the 2012 London Summer Olympics for Italy.

Italian diver Tania Cagnotto has four consecutive bronze medals in springboard events at the World Championships, from 2005-2011. The first three finishes were in the 3m, while she took third in the 1m event in 2011. However, Cagnotto broke the bronze streak in 2009, in front of her home fans in Rome. She finished second in the 3m synchro at those Worlds while teamed up with Francesca Dellape.

Cagnotto competed in the last three Olympics but failed to earn a medal; her best finish is fifth in 3m in 2008. Cagnotto also dives from the 10m platform: a dichotomy not a lot of divers do. She placed 13th in the 10m event in Beijing, while in Athens she placed eighth in both. At the 2000 Sydney Games, Cagnotto contested the 3m springboard and finished 18th.

Cagnotto was hit by a car while driving her motorized scooter to practice in May 2011, which resulted in a trio of injuries: A deep cut below her right knee, a broken left wrist and a hairline fracture in her right fibula. Doctors performed surgery and used pins to stabilize the broken bones. Cagnotto missed two Grand Prix meets but was able to return in the summer for the Worlds.

Cagnotto's parents both have ties to diving. Her father Giorgio was a five-time Olympian for Italy and is now a coach. Her mother Carmen Casteiner dove for Italy at the national level.
