Hilde Holovsky (died July 3, 1933) was an Austrian figure skater. She was the 1931 World silver medalist, the 1933 World bronze medalist, and the 1931 European bronze medalist. When she won the silver medal behind Sonja Henie in 1931, she was only 13 years old and made a great impression[citation needed]. Holovsky did not compete at the 1932 Winter Olympics or 1932 World Figure Skating Championships, because of both events being held in North America and her family could not afford to send her[citation needed].

In addition to competing in figure skating, Holovsky also participated in speed skating and in 1932 set the Austrian record for ladies in the 500 meters.

Holovsky died suddenly of appendicitis in July, 1933.
