Carl-Erik Mauritz "Jätten" Eriksson (born 20 May 1930) is a Swedish bobsledder who was the first person to compete in Bobsleigh at six Olympic Games (1964 to 1984).

Born in Stockholm, Eriksson was flag-bearer for Sweden at the 1976 Winter Olympics in Innsbruck.

In the Bobsled Two-Man Sled, Eriksson came sixth (with Jan Johansson) at the 1972 Winter Olympics and ninth (with Kenth Rönn) at the 1976 Winter Olympics.

The only other bobsledder to compete at six Olympics is Italian Gerda Weissensteiner, although only two of her six appearances were in Bobsleigh (the other four were luge).
