Hubert van Innis (24 February 1866 – 25 November 1961) was a Belgian competitor in the sport of archery. Van Innis competed in four events and won two first prizes and a second prize, and is now considered by the International Olympic Committee to have won two gold medals and a silver medal. His wins came in the shorter events, the 33 metre sections of each of the Au Chapelet and Au Cordon Doré competitions. In the 50 metre Au Cordon Doré, van Innis finished second to Henri Hérouin by a score of 31-29, with Émile Fisseux close behind at 28 points.
Van Innis had his worst of his four outings in the 50 metre Au Chapelet event, finishing in fourth place.
He also lost to Hérouin in the Championnat du Monde event, 22-16, though that event is not considered Olympic by the IOC.
At the 1920 Summer Olympics held in Antwerp, van Innis won four gold and two silver medals, bringing up his total Olympic medal count to six gold and three silver medals. He's the most successful archer in Olympic history.
