Norman Bernard " standard" Slater ( born January 23, 1894 in San Francisco, † March 1, 1979, Clarksburg, California ) was an American rugby union player. He was Olympic champion in 1924 with the U.S. selection.

Slater was on the halfback positions along with his brother Colby to the crew of the Berkeley High School and won with the team in 1911 and 1912, the California state championship.

He later moved to San Francisco and married; when he was appointed in 1924 alongside his brother Colby in the U.S. selection for the Olympic rugby tournament in Paris, he already had two children. In France, he played the first of two games against Romania in the Third Storm series ( the exact position was not noted in the game ). In the second and deciding game of the Eagles in the Olympic tournament against France, he served as a judge on the other hand touch.

After his active sports time he moved in 1928 to his brother Colby to Clarksburg, where she operated a farm; 1946, the brothers Slater co-founded the firefighters from Clarksburg, whose first director Norman Slater was until his retirement in 1962.
