Biographie

Veikko HUHTANEN

Without the doubt, the highlight of Veikko Huhtanen's career was the 1948 Olympics. He was the most successful gymnast of those games with five medals, winning golds in individual all-around, in pommelled horse and in team event, silver in parallel bars and bronze in horizontal bar. At the World Championships, Huhtanen won only two silvers – in horizontal bar and in team event – both in 1950. Domestically, Huhtanen was also not as successful, winning only one individual Finnish title in horizontal bar in 1948 and three team titles (1939, 1941, 1945). He also won Finnish Championship silvers in individual all-around and parallel bars in 1948 and bronzes on vault (1948) and in individual all-around (1949-50). Huhtanen retired after he was not selected to the 1952 Finnish Olympic team and later worked as a machine operator in the factory and also acted as a gymnastics referee.
