Terje Pedersen (born 9 February 1943) is a former Norwegian javelin thrower. He represented SK Vidar.

At the 1960 Summer Olympics he progressed from the qualifying round, but did not start in the final. At the 1964 Summer Olympics he did not qualify for the final. [1] He became Norwegian champion in the years 1960 and 1962-1964. [2]

The first record of 87.12 metres came in July 1964 and the second of 91.72 metres was established in September the same year. This remained his career best throw.[3] [4] For his world records Pedersen was selected Norwegian Sportsperson of the Year in 1964.
