Holger Albrechtsen (23 June 1906 – 14 August 1992) was a Norwegian hurdler who specialized in the 110 and 400 metre hurdles.

He won a bronze medal in 110 metre hurdles and finished fourth in 400 metre hurdles at the 1934 European Championships. He never participated in other international events like the Summer Olympics.[1] He became Norwegian champion in 110 metre hurdles in 1934, 1936 and 1938 [2] and in 400 metre hurdles in 1934 and 1935.[3] He represented IK Tjalve, having moved to Oslo from his native Arendal.[4]

His career best time in 110 metre hurdles was 14.7 seconds, achieved in July 1933 at Bislett stadion.[5] A year later, on the same track, he clocked a career best time in 400 metre hurdles of 54.0 seconds. [6]

He was a board member of the Norwegian Athletics Association from 1945 through 1950, then a deputy board member from 1954 through 1955.[7]

He died in 1992.[1][4]
