Wolfgang Scheidel (born 1 March 1943) is an East German former luger who won the gold medal in the men's singles event at the 1972 Winter Olympics in Sapporo. He also won three medals at the FIL World Luge Championships with one gold in the men's doubles (1965) and two bronzes in the men's singles (1969, 1970). He won a pair of silver medals in the men's singles event at the FIL European Luge Championships (1970, 1971).
