Signe Dagmar Charlotta Johansson-Engdahl (May 27, 1905 – May 9, 2010)[1] was a Swedish swimmer who competed in the Olympic games in 1924 in Paris. She competed in the 1924 Summer Olympics in diving, but did not win a medal, placing 5th. From the death of Carmelo Camet on July 22, 2007,[2] until her own, she was believed to be the oldest living person to have competed in the Olympic games.[3][4] She was married to Olympic bronze and silver medal-winning athlete Nils Engdahl.[5]
