Martin Johnsrud Sundby (born September 26, 1984) is a Norwegian cross-country skier who has competed since 2003. He is the silver medalist of the 2010 Winter Olympics in the team relay and the bronze medalist of the 2014 Winter Olympics in the 30 km skiathlon.
Johnsrud Sundby got his international breakthrough when he won his first individual victory on November 30, 2008 in Kuusamo, Finland. The victory was regarded as a major surprise, despite Johnsrud Sundby delivering several solid displays in earlier races. At lower levels, Johnsrud Sundby has won a junior sprint event in 2003, a 30 km Scandinavian Cup race in 2007, and a 10 km FIS race in 2007. He later won the team sprint event at the test event in Liberec, Czech Republic on February 17, 2008.
Sundby and compatriot Therese Johaug became the first Norwegians to win the Tour de Ski when they won the men's and women' competitions in the 2013-14 edition of the race. Sundby subsequently won the overall and distance competitions in the 2013–14 FIS Cross-Country World Cup. He retained his Tour de Ski title in 2015.
