Besides his Olympic achievements he also won seven gold medals in World Canoeing Championships, over 500, 1000 and 10000 meters. Seventeen years old when he began canoeing, his best competition years were stunted because of World War II.
No other canoeist has struck such fear into his opponents and none has been at the top so long. He had the remarkable capacity, rare in canoeing, of being able to attack at any point in the race, and his acceleration was phenomenal. Although in nineteen years there were defeats, he always sought an opportunity to meet the conqueror and none of these return matches was lost.
Member of Nyköpings Kanotklubbs, who claim to be the most successfull sporting club in Olympic history.
