Baron Hans "Moppe" Gustaf Nils Fredrik Bror von Blixen-Finecke Jr. (20 July 1916 – 16 February 2005) was a Swedish officer and horse rider. He competed in the tree-days eventing at the 1952 and 1956 Summer Olympics and won individual and team gold medals in 1952.[1][2]

He was the son of Hans von Blixen-Finecke, who won an Olympic bronze in dressage in 1908, and the nephew of Bror von Blixen-Finecke and writer Karen Blixen. He was born as Nils Gustaf Fredrik Bror, but since the age of one was called Hans after his father, who died in an airplane crash.[1]
