Thorleif Schjelderup (January 20, 1920 - May 28, 2006) was a Norwegian author and in the 1940s and 1950s one of Norway's best ski jumpers.

He was born in Aker as a son of Ferdinand Schjelderup[1] and his wife Marie Leigh Vogt.[2]

He won a bronze medal in the 1948 Winter Olympics. That same year he met American singer Anne Brown, who moved with him to Oslo where the couple eventually married. Schjelderup had a failed marriage, from 1940 to 1944, behind him.[2]

Schjelderup published his first essay in 1952 and has then wrote books in the field of sports and on Norwegian nature until his 2006 death.
