Simon Yihun Stølen Markeng (born 9 September 1992) is a Norwegian footballer who plays as a forward for Træff in the 2. Divisjon. He has previously played for Molde in Tippeligaen.
Born in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, Markeng grew up in Molde where he played youth-football for Træff. In 2009, he was promoted to the first-team squad by head coach Erik Brakstad and made a few appearances for Træff in the 3. Divisjon before he moved to Molde FK.
Markeng's debut for Molde was away against Vålerenga on 12 April 2010, when he got to play a few minutes. Three days later, played 45 minutes against Strømsgodset. Markeng spent the 2012 season on loan with Kristiansund, when the team won promotion to the 1. Divisjon. Ahead of the 2013 season he made a permanent transfer to Kristiansund, where he received limited playing time in the 1. Divisjon.
Markeng then moved back to his old club Træff ahead of the 2014 season, who now played in the 2. Divisjon. Markeng wanted to step down a level to earn more playing time and the head coach Brakstad stated that he thought Markeng would be their top goalscorer that season.
Markeng made one appearance for the Norwegian under-17 team, when he played against Germany U-17 on 10 January 2009.
