The Sveriges Olympiska Kommitté ( SOK for short ) is the National Olympic Committee of Sweden . It was founded in 1913 and organizes the Olympic movement in Sweden. It consists of 36 member associations.


After it was founded in 1913, the SOC was accepted into the International Olympic Committee in the same year . The first president was King Gustav VI. Adolf , who remained in office until 1933. He was replaced by his son Gustav Adolf , who, however, left office in 1947 due to his death. He was succeeded by Bertil of Sweden , who held the office for fifty years until he died in 1997. This also ended the presidency of a member of the royal family. In 1997 Carl-Gustav Anderberg became president, who was previously chairman of the Swedish Chimney Sweepers Association (Sveriges skorstensfejaremästares riksförbund). After three years in office, he was replaced by Stefan Lindeberg .
