Ashley Postell (born June 9, 1986) is an American artistic gymnast. Postell was a member of the United States National Gymnastics Team from 1997 - 2004. During that time she was the national champion in floor exercise in 2003 and the world champion in balance beam in 2002. She was named to the team for the 2003 World Championships, but developed a very high fever shortly before the competition and had to be replaced. After leaving the national team, she enrolled in the University of Utah where she won an NCAA record of 20 All-America awards for the Utah Red Rocks.

Her NCAA high scores include two 10.0s on vault, 9.95 on bars, 10.0 on beam and 9.975 on floor. Her high score in the all-around is 39.800.

Ashley earned bronze in the NCAA all-around in 2005 and was the silver medalist in 2006, 2007 and 2008. In 2007 she took bronze on the floor exercise and gold on balance beam, her signature event. In the 2008 championships she finished with a silver medal on the balance beam.
