Swedish shooter Oscar Swahn was already 60 years old when he won his first Olympic gold medal in 1908. He won the running deer single-shot event and took a second gold the next day in the team event. Swahn also earned a bronze medal in the running deer double-shot contest.
At the 1912 Stockholm Games, Swahn placed fifth in the individual single-shot event, but then won a bronze in the double-shot and agold in the team single-shot.
After World War I, Swahn returned to the Olympic Games at the age of 72. This made him the oldest-ever competing Olympian. His age did not affect his performances. He won a silver medal in the running deer double-shot team event and also competed in the individual and team single-shot contests.
