Atoy Wilson (born around 1951 or 1952) is a retired American figure skater. Coached by Mabel Fairbanks and then Peter Betts, he represented the Los Angeles Skating Club. In 1965, he was the first African-American skater to compete at the U.S. Figure Skating Championships, placing second in the novice division. At the 1966 championships, he won the novice title, becoming the first black to win a national title in figure skating. He left amateur competition in 1971 and toured professionally with Ice Follies and Holiday on Ice until 1988.
