Konrad Stäheli (December 17, 1866 – November 5, 1931) was a Swiss sports shooter who competed in the late 19th century and early 20th century.

Biography[edit]

He participated in shooting at the 1900 Summer Olympics in Paris and won three gold medals – in the Military Pistol team and the Military Rifle team, and in the Military Rifle individual. He also won a bronze medal in the free pistol competition; fellow Swiss shooter Karl Roderer won gold. Participating in shooting at the 1906 Intercalated Games at Athens, Stäheli took five more medals – a gold medal, two silver medals and a bronze medal in the individual rifle events, and another gold medal in the team rifle competition. His nine total medals in Olympic shooting competition remained a record until the United States' Carl Osburn won 11, all in rifle events, between 1912 and 1924.

Stäheli also won the 1906 World Championship in 50 m Pistol.

Achievements[edit]

Stäheli wons 44 medals in the individual events (69 medals counting the events team) at the World Shooting Championships.[1]

He won 38 gold, 17 silver and 10 bronze at the World Championships and 3 gold and 1 bronze at the Summer Olympics, but in 1900 Summer Olympics the events were valid as World Championship, therefore the total is 41/17/11.[2]
