Sami Jauhojärvi (born 5 May 1981) is a Finnish cross-country skier who has been competing since 2000. At the 2014 Winter Olympics, he won men's team sprint with Iivo Niskanen. Germany launched a protest over the result due to a final-leg collision between Jauhojärvi and Tim Tscharnke, but it was rejected by the jury.[1] Jauhojärvi finished fifth in the 4 x 10 km relay in Vancouver in 2010.

Jauhojärvi won his first medal at the FIS Nordic World Ski Championships 2009 in Liberec with a bronze in the team sprint with Ville Nousiainen, and then added a second in the 4 x 10 km. Jauhojärvi has won one World Cup race; in Trondheim 2009 he won the 50 km classic mass start competition.
