JOHANSSON Ivar (1903-1979), Sweden / Wrestling
This Swedish wrestler won three Olympic medals at the Los Angeles games in 1932 in the freestyle and Graeco-Roman categories. In order to win the light-middleweight category of the Greco-Roman wrestling competition in Los Angeles, Johansson had to undertake a perilous exercise: to lose seven kilos in one day. He therefore followed a draconian diet, did lots of sport and spent hours in the sauna.Four years later in Berlin the Swedish policeman again found himself on the top step of the podium, again in the Greco-Roman discipline, although was not his speciality.
