Ute Noack was an East German butterfly swimmer who competed at the 1964 Tokyo Olympic Games. She failed to reach the 100 fly final, as she was eliminated in the semifinal. Noack had her best year in 1962, winning a gold and silver medal at the 1962 Europeans in Leipzig with the 4x100 medley relay and in the 100 butterfly, beaten only by Dutchwoman Ada Kok. The relay was named 1962 East German Team of the Year. At these championships West German swimmers were not allowed to participate, as the Berlin Wall had been built just one year earlier.

Noack also bettered the European record twice in the 100 and once in the 200 butterfly, in 1962 and 1964, respectively. In 1963 and 1964 she earned the East German title in the 100, adding the 200 fly title in 1964. Swimming with TSC Berlin in 1963 she also won titles with both the 4x100 medley and the 4x100 freestyle relays.
