Håkon Brusveen (15 July 1927 – 21 April 2021) was a Norwegian cross-country skier. He competed in the individual 15 km and 4 × 10 km relay events at the 1956 and 1960 Olympics and won two medals in 1960: a gold in the 15 km and a silver in the relay; in 1956 he placed fifth and fourth, respectively. In 1958 he was awarded the Holmenkollen medal (shared with Inger Bjørnbakken). After ending his active career, he worked as freelance sports broadcaster for NRK for 35 years.

Career
Brusveen had a chronic asthmatic bronchitis and took up skiing to improve his condition. In 1952 he placed fifth in the Olympic trials and was selected as a reserve for the Olympic skiing team. He won the national 30 km title in 1953, 1957 and 1958, and around that time opened a sport shop in Lillehammer. Brusveen was originally selected as a substitute member of the 1960 Norwegian Olympic team, but performed well shortly before the Olympics, and was included to the main team upon personal recommendation from King Olav V of Norway. At the Olympics he won the 15 km race, beating Sixten Jernberg by 3 seconds at the finish, but lost by 0.8 seconds to Veikko Hakulinen in the last leg of the 4 × 10 km relay, despite having a 20 seconds lead at the start.
After the 1960 Olympics Brusveen changed to biathlon, but failed to qualify for the 1964 Olympics by a small margin.
From the 1960s onwards he became a popular radio commentator of cross-country skiing events for Norsk Rikskringkasting. He was a freelance expert commentator for NRK for 35 years, starting in 1963. He often collaborated with Bjørge Lillelien on live broadcasting of cross-country events. As a cross-country expert, his reporting style was pioneering at the time, situated somewhere out by the tracks, he commented on skiers' speed, technique and look when they passed. His last season as sports reporter was the winter of 1997.
Brusveen was awarded the Holmenkollen Medal in 1958, jointly with Inger Bjørnbakken, and the Morgenbladet Gold Medal in 1960. He was portrayed by Arvid Møller in 1965, in the book 3–2–1–Gå. Håkon Brusveen forteller til Arvid Møller.
He died in Lillehammer on 21 April 2021, 93 years old.
