Frank X. Kugler (March 29, 1879, Germany – July 7, 1952, St. Louis, Missouri) was a German- American wrestler, weightlifter and tug of war competitor who competed in the 1904 Summer Olympics.

In 1904 he won a silver medal in wrestlings' heavyweight category, bronze medals in weightliftings' two hand lift and all-around dumbbell events and another bronze in the tug of war competition as a member of Southwest Turnverein of Saint Louis No. 2 team. He was a member of the St. Louis Southwest Turnverein team, being granted US citizenship in 1913. The IOC attributes his medals to the United States.[1]

He is the only competitor to win a medal in three different sports at the same Olympic Games.
