Shara Proctor (born 16 September 1988) is an Anguillian long jumper competing for Great Britain since 2011.
She competed at the 2006 Commonwealth Games and the 2007 World Championships for Anguilla, but without reaching the final round.

In November 2010, she transferred her allegiance to Great Britain. A British Overseas Territory, Anguilla does not have a National Olympic Committee (NOC) of its own; the British Olympic Association is recognised as the appropriate NOC for such athletes and thus Anguillan athletes who hold a British passport are eligible to represent Great Britain at the Olympic Games. Following her transfer of allegiance, however, Proctor also became eligible to compete for Great Britain at European and World Championships.

In November 2012 Proctor moved from her training base at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, Daytona Beach to Loughborough when her coach Rana Reider was recruited to work at UK Athletics. On Reider’s move to the Netherlands, Proctor relocated to stay with her coach.

She also won the 2013 IAAF Diamond League in the event.

On 28 August 2015 at the World Championships in Beijing she became the first British female long jumper to jump over 7 meters (7.07) thus setting a new British record, and earning a silver medal.

Her longest jumps outdoors are 7.07 metres in the long jump, achieved in August 2015 in Beijing; and 13.82 meters in the triple jump, achieved in April 2017 in Azusa, California at the Bryan Clay Invitational.

She holds the national outdoor long jump records for Anguilla and Great Britain.
