He competed for Sweden at the 1948 Summer Olympics held in London, Great Britain where he won the gold medal in the men's 10 kilometer walk leading to a Swedish sweep of the gold medals in race walking after John Ljunggren won the 50 kilometre.
At the 1952 Summer Olympics held in Helsinki, Finland he managed his own double by winning his second and the last 10 kilometre walk in the Olympics before it became the 20 kilometre walk four years later.
