Björn Thofelt (born 12 June 1935) is a Swedish modern pentathlete. He won and individual world title in 1954 and finished third with the Swedish team. He also competed at the 1956 and 1960 Summer Olympics. In 1956, the Swedish team was a favorite, as it included the 1952 and 1956 Olympic champion Lars Hall. However, Thofelt had drawn the lot for a very peculiar horse in the equestrian event; he fell twice, suffered a concussion, and had to withdraw. At the 1960 Olympics he injured his hand, and finished 30th individually and sixth with the team.
