Biography

Einari Allan TERÄSVIRTA

Einari Teräsvirta won his first Olympic medals in 1932, two bronze medals in the team all-around and high bar. The Finnish team management internally decided that Heikki Savolainen should receive the silver medal on the high bar and Teräsvirta the bronze, after they had tied. In 1936 Teräsvirta won his third bronze medal and in 1948 crowned his career with a team gold medal.

Teräsvirta later became a well-known and respected architect in Finland. As an architect he graduated from the Helsinki University of Technology in 1939. In 1949, he established his own office and designed numerous public buildings, notably for the Helsinki University, and sports venues in Helsinki. He ran his office until age 72 and held various positions in the Finnish Association of Architects and other professional institutions. In 1974 he was awarded the title of professor.
