Ole Stenen (29 August 1903 in Øyer, Gudbrandsdal – 23 April 1975) was a Norwegian Nordic skier who competed in nordic combined and cross-country skiing in the 1920s and early 1930s.

He was born in Øyer and represented the club Øyer IL. He died in April 1975 in Oslo.[1]

He won a Nordic combined silver at the 1932 Winter Olympics in Lake Placid, New York.[1] In addition, he won the 50 km cross country event at both the 1931 World Ski Championships and the 1931 Holmenkollen ski festival.[2][3] He also won silver in the Nordic combined at the 1929 World Ski Championships and finished fourth at the 1934 World Ski Championships.[4] Because of those wins, Stenen shared the Holmenkollen medal in 1931 with fellow Norwegian Hans Vinjarengen, a fellow Nordic combined athlete.[5]

He participated in the demonstration event, military patrol (precursor to biathlon), in the 1928 Winter Olympics.
