Oskar Lindberg was a Swedish cross-country skier who represented IFK Norsjö. In 1922 Lindberg finished in second place in the first edition of the Vasaloppet, an annual cross-country race held on the first Sunday of March in Sweden. His skiing club could not afford to send any competitors, but the newspaper Västerbottens-Kuriren were able to pay expenses for three members of IFK Norsjö to attend. The following year Lindberg finished one place better and won the race. Lindberg competed in the 50 kilometres at the 1924 Chamonix Olympics where he finished in eighth place.
