Gjermund Eggen (born 5 June 1941) is a retired Norwegian cross-country skier who won three gold medals at the 1966 FIS Nordic World Ski Championships. The championships were held in Oslo in conjunction with the Holmenkollen ski festival, so Eggen's medals also counted as Holmenkollen victories. He was awarded the Holmenkollen medal in 1968 (shared with King Olav V, Assar Rönnlund, and Bjørn Wirkola). He competed at the 1968 Winter Olympics in the 30 km event, but finished only 34th.[1]
