Biography

Martin Gunnarsson is the only military enlisted man to have ever won medals in shooting at the Olympics, the Pan-American Games and the World Championships. His Pan-American medals were both gold and were won in team events at the 1959 and 1963 Pan-Am Games – in the English match and free rifle event, respectively. At the 1966 World Championships in Wiesbaden, West Germany he also won a gold medal in the free rifle-team event. In addition, both free rifle team performances (in 1963 and 1966) earned him a share of the world record. Gunnarsson was a native Swede, who emigrated to the United States.
