Gustaf Söderström (November 25, 1865, Stockholm – November 12, 1958) was a Swedish athlete and tug of war competitor.

He competed at the 1900 Summer Olympics and finished 6th in both shot put and discus throw. He also participated on the Dano-Swedish tug of war team which won the gold medal against opponents France. These were the first Olympic gold medals for Sweden, a feat that would not be repeated until 1908 [1].
