Olympic medal record

Men's Equestrian
Silver 1928 Amsterdam Team eventing

Wilhelm Eugen Johansen (February 1, 1892 – 1973) was a Norwegian horse rider who competed in the 1920 Summer Olympics, in the 1928 Summer Olympics, and in the 1936 Summer Olympics.

In 1920 he and his horse Nökken finished eleventh in the individual eventing. The Norwegian eventing team did not finish the team eventing competition, because only two riders were able to finish the individual competition. Johnsen and Nökken also participated in the individual jumping event and finished 13th.

Eight years later he and his horse Baby won the silver medal as member of the Norwegian eventing team in the team eventing competition after finishing 27th in the individual eventing.

In 1936 he and his horse Sorte Mand finished seventh as part of the Norwegian dressage team in the team dressage competition, after finishing 20th in the individual dressage event.
