Gregor Urbas (born 20 November 1982 in Jesenice) is a Slovenian former competitive figure skater. He is a three-time Golden Spin of Zagreb champion, a five-time Triglav Trophy champion, the 2006 Ondrej Nepela Memorial champion, and a nine-time (2001–2009) Slovenian national champion. He competed at the 2006 and 2010 Winter Olympics. He qualified for the free skate at nineteen ISU Championships – six Worlds, eight Europeans, and five Junior Worlds.

Urbas began skating when he was about eight years old.[1][2] His first coach was Mojca Kurbos.[1] He joined Elena Babitskaia and Valeri Babitski by 2001.[3] They coached him until the end of the 2004–05 season.[4] Gordana Smrekar became his coach the following season.[5] During his career, he practiced mainly in Slovenia and occasionally traveled to Philadelphia to train under Uschi Keszler.[1]
