Hans Anders Södergren (born 17 May 1977 in Söderhamn, Hälsingland) is a Swedish cross-country skier who has competed since 1999. He earned a bronze medal in the 4 × 10 km relay at the 2006 Winter Olympics in Turin and also finished 5th in the 15 km + 15 km double pursuit event at those same Olympics. In the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver he won a gold medal with the Swedish team in the 4 × 10 km relay.

Södergren won four medals at the FIS Nordic World Ski Championships with two silvers (15 km + 15 km double pursuit: 2009, 50 km: 2003) and two bronzes in the 4 × 10 km relay (2003, 2007). He has eight FIS Race victories and is a ten-time national champion at distances between 15 km and 50 km as of the 2005–06 season.

Södergren won the 50 km event at both the 2006 and the 2008 Holmenkollen ski festival, making him the only skier to have won an international 50 km elite race with individual start in free technique since 2004.

Södergren has a twin brother, Per,[1] who was forced to abandon his cross-country skiing career following a back injury.[citation needed]
