Laëtitia Hubert (born 23 June 1974 in Paris) is a French figure skater. She is the 1997 Trophée Lalique champion, the 1992 World Junior champion, and a two-time French national senior champion (1998–1999). She competed in four Winter Olympic Games (1992, 1994, 1998, and 2002) and placed as high as 4th at the World Championships (1992 and 1998).
Hubert began skating at three years old. She finished 21st in her World Championship debut in 1990. The following year, at the 1991 World Championships, she had a rough collision with Midori Ito of Japan during the short program warmup.
In the 1991–1992 season, Hubert won the World Junior title and later took silver behind Surya Bonaly at the French National Championships. This finish earned her a trip to the 1992 Albertville Olympics. At this time she was working on her triple lutz jump but elected to do a triple loop jump during her Olympic short program where she placed 5th. She was the last skater of the evening during the long program which dropped her to 12th place overall. Hubert competed at the 1992 World Championships one month later. She had two falls but completed six triples, including a triple flip jump and a triple/triple combination. Her third place in the free skate, combined with 5th in the short, resulted in 4th overall, her career-best World result. Hubert matched that result in 1998, with the next-best result, 6th, occurring in 1995 and 1997.
Hubert had many knee and foot injuries, resulting in her missing most of the 1999–2000 season. She retired from competition following the 2001–2002 season. She performed at the 2011 Caesars Tribute Show.
Hubert was married in summer 2000.
