Viktor Erik Kjäll (Swedish pronunciation: [ɕɛ̂l]; born 13 June 1985) is an internationally elite curler from Karlstad.[1][2]

Viktor Kjäll made his World Championship debut at the 2007 Edmonton World Championships as the Second for Sweden's most successful male skip Peja Lindholm. They finished with a 6 – 5 record in a four way tie for fourth place. In the tiebreaker's they lost to the eventual Silver Medalists Team Germany skipped by Andy Kapp.

After Peja Lindholm's retirement he eventually made his way onto Niklas Edin's team. Their first major competition was the 2009 European Championships held in Aberdeen, Scotland. They lost just two matches in the round robin and went on to win both of their Playoff matches against Team Ulsrud of Norway and Team Stöckli of Switzerland to win the Gold Medal.

Kjäll's team had been selected as Team Sweden for the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver, Canada[3] and most recently for Team Sweden for the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia.
