Bo Evert Ericson (28 January 1919; Frölunda – 14 February 1970; Karlstad) was a Swedish hammer thrower who won a gold medal at the 1946 European Athletics Championships in Oslo with a throw of 56.44 metres.[1] He was also a finalist at the 1948 Olympics in London, but he finished in sixth place with a throw of 52.98 metres.[2]

Ericson twice broke the Swedish national record for the hammer throw–in 1941 with a throw of 56.66 metres and, secondly, in 1947 with a throw of 57.19 metres–and held the record outright from 1941 until 1955.[3] He was a ten-time winner of the hammer throw at the Swedish national championships.[4]
