Bernt Harry Johansson (born 18 April 1953) is a retired road bicycle racer from Sweden, who was a professional rider from 1977 to 1981. A competitor at the 1972 Summer Olympics, he represented his native country once again at the 1976 Summer Olympics in Montreal, Canada, where he won the men's individual road race.[1] For that performance Johansson was awarded the Svenska Dagbladet Gold Medal the same year, together with track and field athlete Anders Gärderud, who claimed gold in the men's 3000 m steeplechase in Montreal.
