Johannes Thingnes Bø (born 16 May 1993) is a Norwegian biathlete. He represents Markane IL [no] and is the younger brother of biathlete Tarjei Bø. Thingnes Bø has won the Biathlon World Cup in 2018/19, 2019/20 and 2020/21. He is the third most successful male biathlete of all time in the World Cup with 52 individual World Cup victories including victories at the Winter Olympic Games.

Thingnes Bø is famous for his fast skiing, which was his biggest strength in the early part of his career. However, in recent years Thingnes Bø has improved his shooting accuracy and elevated his ski speed to new heights. This development has made him the dominant biathlete in the men's World Cup for the last three seasons.
