Biography

Gudbrand Skatteboe was a four-time Olympian, who won one medal at each Olympics in which he participated. In the 1906 free rifle team event he was the best individual shooter, receiving a revolver, some say it was a dagger, as a gift from the Greek King Georgios I. Therefore, many sources mistake him as the first Norwegian individual gold medalist. With his Østre Skytterlag team he won national rifle titles in 1911. For 11 years he was the chairman of his club and later became an honorary member. Skatteboe worked five years in a lawyer’s office in Christiania (now Oslo) and two years in England before he started his own brokerage business in 1905. In 1922 he was appointed General Manager of the Christiania Industrial and Commercial Bank.
