Radya Nikolayevna Yeroshina (Russian: Радья Николаевна Ерошина; September 17, 1930 September 23, 2012) was a Soviet cross country skier who competed in the 1950s and 1960s, training at Lokomotiv in Moscow.[1][2]

She won four Winter Olympic medals with three silvers in the 10 km (1956 and the 3x5 km (1956, 1960) and a bronze in the 10 km (1960).[2] She also won the 10 km event at the Holmenkollen ski festival in 1958.[3]

Yeroshina also won two medals at the FIS Nordic World Ski Championships with a gold in the 3x5 km (1958) and a bronze in the 10 km (1962).[2] The 1962 medal was later revoked as a result of testing positive for performance-enhancing drugs.
