Anton Carl Diderik Dahlberg (born 10 May 1985 in Växjö) is a Swedish sailor, who specialized in two-person dinghy (470) class.[1][2] He represented Sweden, along with his partner Sebastian Östling, in two editions of the Olympic Games (2008 and 2012). He has also been training for the Royal Swedish Yacht Club (Swedish: Kungliga Svenska Segel Sällskapet) throughout most of his sporting career under his personal coach and mentor Per Frykholm.[1] As of September 2013, Dahlberg was ranked no. 28 in the world in the two-person dinghy class by the International Sailing Federation.

Dahlberg made his official debut at the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing, where he paired up with crew member Sebastian Östling in the men's 470 class. The Swedish duo finished fifteenth in a ten-round opening series with a net score of 111, trailing Israelis Gideon Kliger and Udi Gal by a narrow, three-point gap in the final standings.[3]

Dahlberg qualified to compete for the second time as a skipper in the men's 470 class at the Olympics by finishing eleventh and receiving at the ISAF World Championships in Perth, Western Australia.[4][5] Teaming again with Ostling in the opening series, the Swedish duo achieved four top 10 finishes to guarantee a spot in the final race, but fell short for the podium with an accumulated net score of 123 points and a tenth-place finish in a fleet of twenty-seven boats.[6][7]
