With seven medals, Einar Liberg is still one of the most successful Norwegian Olympic athletes. But most of his shooting medals came in team events, except a bronze in running target, double shots in 1920. He won team golds in running target, single shots in 1920 and 1924; running target, double shots in 1920; free rifle, 3-position in 1908; and added team silvers in free rifle, 3-positions event in 1912; and in running target, double shots in 1924. Liberg was much less successful at the World Championships, mainly because his favorite discipline, running target, was first contested at World Championships in 1929. He won gold in team running target, double shots and silver in team running target, single shots at the 1929 Worlds. By profession Liberg was a schoolteacher, teaching in various public schools in Oslo.
