Eduard "Edy" Hubacher (born 15 April 1940 in Bern) is a former Swiss sportsman.

In the 1960s he competed as shot putter, discus thrower and decathlete. He still holds the current world best shot put (19.17 meters, 10 May 1969) within a decathlon. In the early 1970s, he switched to bobsledding. At the 1972 Winter Olympics in Sapporo, he won a gold in the four-man and a bronze in the two man events.
