Biography

Eric CARLBERG

With his twin brother Vilhelm, Eric Carlberg was the youngest of four children of a veterinarian and his wife. Their father died early, when the twins were only 12-years-old. Both twins became officers in 1901 and finished their military career with the rank of major. Both also become physical education directors in 1911.

Eric Carlberg competed in four Olympics in three different sports (fencing/shooting/modern pentathlon), but medaled only in shooting at the 1908 Games and at his home Games in 1912. All his five medals (two gold and three silver) came from team events, which were held at the Olympics up to 1924. As a shooter he was a member of Stockholms AF (1906 and 1908), Stockholms PK (1912), and FOK (1924) and he represented FFF as a fencer and I26 IF as a modern pentathlete. He never medaled at the World Championships. In 1924 he married Elsa Lindell and was stationed for three years to establish an officers corps in what is now Iran. In 1930 he became Swedish consul general in Tehran and from 1935-58 was Finnish consul general in Tehran.
