Frithjof Kleen (born June 25, 1983 in Berlin) is a German sailor, who specialized in two-person keelboat (Star) class. He represented Germany, along with his partner Robert Stanjek in the Star class at the 2012 Summer Olympics, and also captured a silver medal at the 2011 ISAF Sailing World Championships in Perth, Australia. Kleen has also been training throughout most of his sporting career for the North German Sailing Regatta (German: Norddeutscher Regatta Verein) in Hamburg under his personal coach Alan Smith.
Kleen qualified as a crew member for the German squad in the Star class at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London by placing second and receiving a berth from the ISAF World Championships in Perth, Western Australia. Teaming with his partner Robert Stanjek in the opening series, the German duo recorded a net score of 70 points throughout the entire race, but came up short for the medal podium with a satisfying sixth position against a fleet of sixteen boats.
