Signe Dagmar Charlotta Johansson-Engdahl (27 May 1905 – 9 May 2010)[1] was a Swedish diver. She competed at the 1924 Summer Olympics in the 3 m springboard and placed fifth. From the death of Erna Sondheim on 9 January 2008 until her own death, she was believed to be the oldest living person to have competed in the Olympic games.[2][3] She was married to the Olympic runner Nils Engdahl, and her sister-in-law Märta Johansson was also an Olympic diver.[4]
