Simon Charles Dickie (31 March 1951 – 13 December 2017) was a New Zealand rowing cox who won three Olympic medals: two gold and one bronze. He was born in Waverley in Taranaki, New Zealand.[1] For the 1968 Summer Olympics, New Zealand qualified an eight and had a pool of four rowers and a cox as a travelling reserve; Dickie was part of this reserve as their cox.

Dickie was only one of fifteen New Zealanders to have won two or more Olympic gold medals. He later owned an adventure company in Taupo.[2]

Dickie died on 13 December 2017 in Wellington, New Zealand after falling from his balcony at the age of 66.[3]
