Jens Byggmark (born 22 August 1985) is a World Cup alpine ski racer from Sweden,[1] who specialises in the technical events of slalom and giant slalom.

Byggmark was born in Örebro but was raised in Tärnaby. He races for Tärna IK Fjällvinden, the world's most successful ski club. He made his debut in the European Cup in 2005.

FIS World Cup[edit]

Byggmark made his World Cup debut in 2005, and has won two slalom events, both during the 2007 season, on successive days at Kitzbühel, Austria. Two days later, he placed second in the slalom at Schladming, Austria.

After having struggled for some years with poor results and bad starting positions, Byggmark made a strong comeback during the 2011 season and for two seasons he had a place in the first start group. In September 2013, however, he suffered a knee injury, hindering him to compete during the winter 2013/14, including that season's Olympic Games.
