Sportsmanden ('The Sportsman') was a Norwegian weekly sports newspaper.[1]

It was established in 1913 by Magnus Brænden, absorbed the competitor Idrætsliv in 1933, and went defunct in 1965.[2] From 1914 to 1919 the paper was edited by Nanna With, a feminist.[3] The other editors include Magnus Brænden and Charles Hoff.
