Antonín "Toni" Šváb Jr. (June 9, 1974 in Vlašim) is a former Czech motorcycle speedway rider who has won silver medal in the 1999 Speedway World Team Cup for the Czech Republic. He has entered in three Individual Under-21 World Championship finals (1993–1995) and has started in the Speedway Grand Prix and the Speedway World Cup. On January 8, 2006 Šváb suffered very serious accident during a race in Argentina. He spent a month in a coma on life support and after recovery remained partially paralyzed on his left side, his short term memory was damaged and eventually was given partial invalid retirement. In the middle of 2008, reflecting worsened health situation, Šváb decided to end his sport activities. Šváb's father, Antonín Šváb, Sr., also a speedway rider, was the winner of the Individual Ice Racing World Champion title in 1970.
