Biography

Hugo Johansson competed in three Olympics (1912-24) winning gold and bronze medals in 1912 and 1920, failing to medal only in 1924. He was awarded an individual gold medal in 1920 in the military rifle, prone, 600 metres, beating three other contestants in a shoot-out. Johansson’s career ran parallel to that of Mauritz Eriksson, with whom Johansson won his team event gold medal in the free rifle, three positions, 300 metres in 1912.
