Sven Michel (born March 30, 1988) is a Swiss curler from Interlaken. He won a gold medal for Switzerland at the 2013 European Curling Championships and skipped Switzerland at the 2014 Winter Olympics.
Michel won a silver medal at the 2010 European Mixed Curling Championship, playing second for Claudio Pätz. Later in the season, he and partner Alina Pätz won the gold medal at the 2011 World Mixed Doubles Curling Championship. Michel would then become one of the top skips in Switzerland, and would represent his country at the 2011 and 2012 European Curling Championships as skip. He also represented Switzerland at the 2013 Ford World Men's Curling Championship, Michel's first world championship appearance, placing 7th. Later that year, Michel led his country to a gold medal at the 2013 European Championships.
Michel's recent success propelled him to be selected by the Swiss Curling Association to represent the country at the 2014 Winter Olympics. At the games, he led Switzerland to an 8th place finish with a 3-6 record.
Michel is employed as a bricklayer. His spouse is fellow curler Alina Pätz.
