Sven Evert Gunnarsson (born 28 December 1929) is a retired Swedish rower. In his early career he competed in the coxless pair. Together with Bernt Torberntsson he won the 1949 European Championships, but had no success at the 1948 and 1952 Olympics. He then changed to coxed fours and eights and won three silver medals at the 1955 European Championships[1] and 1956 Olympics.[2][3]
