Christoffer Svae (born 21 March 1982 in Oslo) is a Norwegian curler who currently plays second for Team Thomas Ulsrud.[1][2][3]

At Junior level, Svae played second for Team Thomas Løvold and won gold medals at the 2002 and 2003 World Junior Curling Championships "B" tournaments.

Svae formally joined Team Ulsrud in 2007 having played alternate since 2005. During the 2005–2010 seasons, Svae and his team won six World Curling Tour events, three European Curling Championship medals (silver in 2007 and 2008; bronze in 2009), four World Curling Championship medals (bronze in 2006, 2008 and 2009; silver in 2010), and silver at the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics.[2][4][5][6]

It was Svae who selected Loudmouth Golf's colorful argyle pants (Dixie and Red & Gray) as Team Norway's uniform at the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics because they came close to matching the Norwegian flag colors – red, white and blue. The pants brought Team Norway unprecedented popularity as shown by the surge in sales at Loudmouth Golf as well as the number of followers at the Facebook's Norwegian Olympic Curling Team's Pants fan page exceeding over 600,000 by the end of the 2009-10 curling season.[7][8][9][10]
