Olympic Athlete. Adlerz was a noted Swedish diver or water springer (somebody who can do a series of different dives at once including twists and turns), who competed at the 1912 Summer Olympics in Stockholm. He won two gold medals in all, the first one for the 10 metre platform, and the other one for plain high jumping. He also competed in the 1908 Summer Olympics in London where he was eliminated in the first round in the 10 metre platform event, and the 1920 Summer Olympics in Antwerp, Belgium, where he won a silver medal in the 10 metre platform. In 1924, he made his last appearance at the Summer Olympics in Paris, where in the 10 metre platform event he finished in fourth place, but in the plain high diving he was eliminated in the first round. He retired from swimming soon after his last appearance. He lived out his final days in Stockholm, dying at the age of 83. In 1986, he was posthumously honored as a pioneer diver by the International Swimming Hall of Fame.
