Enrico Fabris (born 5 October 1981, Asiago, province of Vicenza) is a former Italian long track speed skater who has won three World Cup races and became the first European Allround Champion from Italy when he won the 2006 European Championships one month before the Winter Olympics in Turin. In 2007 he won also the silver medal and in 2008 the bronze medal. Fabris is also a six-time Italian Allround Champion.
At the 2006 Olympics he won a bronze medal in the men's 5,000 m event, Italy's first ever Olympic medal in speed skating. Five days later, he was in the winning team on the team pursuit event, to claim Italy's first Olympic speed skating gold. With a time of one minute, 45.97 seconds in the 1,500 m race, Fabris claimed his third medal and defeated American favourites Shani Davis and Chad Hedrick to become the first non-American to win an individual men's event through the first four races of the Turin Winter Games. On 10 November 2007 he took the 5,000 meter world record with 6.07.40, which he lost one week later, when Sven Kramer skated faster in Calgary.
