Claver Kamanya (born 25 March 1947) is a Tanzanian former athlete who specialised in sprinting events. Born in Bukoba, he represented Tanzania at two Olympic Games and won a bronze medal in the 400 metres at the 1974 British Commonwealth Games.[1]

At the 1968 Summer Olympics he competed in the 400 metres and set his personal best time, 45.74, in the opening heats of the competition, which remains a national record. He was eliminated in the semi-finals stage after placing seventh.[2]
