He competed for 40 years, from 1908 to 1948, a record he shares with Ivan OsiierDurward Knowles and Paul Elvstrøm.
His son Karsten Magnus Konow joined him for the silver medal in 1936.
One source claims that it was Karsten Magnus Konow (son) who sailed in 1948, casting doubt on his father having the longest career in Olympic history. David Wallechinsky assures me that it has been checked, it was the father who sailed in 1948.
