Evelyn Tokue Kawamoto (born September 17, 1933) is an American former competition swimmer and two-time Olympic medalist.

Kawamoto represented the United States at the 1952 Summer Olympics in Helsinki, Finland, where she earned two bronze medals as an 18-year-old.[1] She received her first bronze in the women's 4×100-meter freestyle relay, when the U.S. team of Jackie LaVine, Marilee Stepan, Jody Alderson and Kawamoto placed third behind the teams from Hungary and the Netherlands.[2][3] Individually, she received a second bronze for her third-place performance in the women's 400-meter freestyle behind Hungarian swimmers Valéria Gyenge and Éva Novák.[1][4]

She later married U.S. Olympic swimming gold medalist Ford Konno, who also competed at the 1952 Summer Olympics.[1]
