Olga Anatolyevna Bicherova (born October 26, 1967 or October 26, 1966 in Moscow, Russian SFSR) was a Soviet gymnast, who won the women's all-around gold medal at the 1981 World Artistic Gymnastics Championships.

Bicherova began gymnastics at age 7, initially training at the CSKA Moscow sports school and later representing the Armed Forces sports society. Her first major success was at the 1980 Junior Friendship Tournament, where she won the team gold, all-around title and placed first on the vault. A year later, Bicherova won the team gold and all-around gold at the 1981 World Championships, starting a series of major international successes, which included the all-around title at both the 1982 World Cup and the 1983 European Championships. She didn't compete at the boycotted 1984 Summer Olympics and also missed the Friendship Games.

Bicherova was an Honoured Master of Sports of the USSR. Due to an elbow injury, she retired from gymnastics in 1988 and worked as a coach for some time. She married fellow Soviet gymnast Valentin Mogilny.
