Charles Georg Lomberg (4 December 1886 - 5 March 1966) was a Swedish decathlete. He competed at the 1912 Summer Olympics in the long jump, pentathlon and decathlon and finished in 17th, 16th and third place, respectively. He was awarded a silver medal in the decathlon after the disqualification of Jim Thorpe. In 1982 Thorpe was reinstated as the champion, yet Lomberg retained its second position and silver medal.[1][3][4]

Lomberg won the 1912 Swedish decathlon title, beating Hugo Wieslander, but lost to Wieslander at the 1912 Olympics. He actively competed only in 1911-1912, and tried to qualify for the 1920 Games, but failed.[1]
