Biography

He improved to world class rapidly and three years later, won a silver in the triple jump and bronze in the long jump at the 1912 Olympics. He competed for another 10 years but never attained such heights again. He was unplaced at the 1914 Baltic Games but did win the long jump at the big Swedish Games in 1916, with a mark of 6.98. He was national long jump champion three times (1912-13, 1915). Åberg later directed his own firm.
