Biography

Ulf JOHANSSON

Ulf Johansson competed for I2 Idrottsförening from Karlstad. He was part of the Swedish nation team in biathlon from the late 1980s to the mid-90s, making his début in the 1987-88 Biathlon World Cup season. In 1990 he competed for the first time in the World Championships finishing 17th in the sprint and 8th with the Swedish relay team. In the 1991 World Championships in Lahti exactly the same relay team took the 8th place again. At the 1992 Winter Olympics he helped win a Swedish bronze medal in the relay behind Germany and the Unified Team, Sweden’s first medal in biathlon since Lars-Göran Arwidson’s bronze medal in the 1972 individual event. The post-Olympic season was the best of Ulf Johansson’s career, achieving his six best individual results including five top 10 positions, and he won his only World Cup race in an individual 20 km, placing 12th overall that year in the World Cup. After competing in his second Winter Olympics in 1994, his last major championships were the 1995 Worlds in Antholz, where his best finish was sixth with the Swedish relay team.

At the time of his major successes, Ulf Johansson lived in Umeå and studied sports education in Umeå. Later he worked for the pharmaceutical industry. With his wife Helene he had two sons and they lived in Karlstad, where Johansson worked as the city’s business director.
