Cycling[edit]

Four cyclists represented Sweden in 1924. It was the nation's fourth appearance in the sport. The Swedes competed only in the road cycling time trials. Two of the four placed in the top ten, but neither were able to secure a medal. The times of the top three Swedes were good enough to win the team bronze, however, making 1924 the third consecutive Games in which the Swedish road cyclists had won a team medal.

Diving[edit]

Eleven divers, seven men and four women, represented Sweden in 1924. It was the nation's fourth appearance in the sport. Despite having 11 of the nation's 14 entries reach the finals (3 divers competed in two events apiece), Sweden finished without a gold medal for the first time in its Olympic diving history. Jansson's silver in the men's plain high diving was the best result of the year, with Töpel adding a bronze medal in the women's platform.

Equestrian[edit]

Twelve equestrians represented Sweden in 1924; Sweden was one of two nations (along with France) to send the maximum number of riders. It was the nation's third appearance in the sport. Sweden's four medals was twice the number won by any other nation, and Sweden matched the Netherlands for most gold medals at two (a historical low for Sweden, which had taken four gold medals in both 1912 and 1920).

All four of Sweden's dressage competitors finished in the top five, with France's Lesage taking the bronze to break up the Swedish dominance—Sweden had swept the medals in each of the two previous Games. In contrast, König at fifth was the only Swede in the top five of the eventing and no Swedes finished in the top five in jumping (though two came in the top seven). Nevertheless, Sweden took silver in the combined team score for eventing and gold in the jumping team competition.

Football[edit]

Sweden competed in the Olympic football tournament for the fourth time in 1924. The Swedish side won the nation's first Olympic football medal, with a bronze, by defeating the Netherlands in the bronze medal match (which required a replay after the first match was drawn). The Swedes had reached that point by winning lopsided victories over Belgium, the defending champions, and Egypt before losing a tight match to Switzerland.
