Yhya Hasaba (Arabic: يحيى حسابا; born January 5, 1974 in Damascus) is a Syrian judoka, who competed in the men's half-heavyweight category. Hasaba qualified as a lone judoka for the Syrian team in the men's half-heavyweight class (100 kg) at the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens, by granting a tripartite invitation from the International Judo Federation. He lost his opening match to U.S. judoka Rhadi Ferguson, who pulled him off a perfectly timed scoop throw (sukui nage) for an ippon to close the five-minute bout.
