Biography

Jorien TER MORS

Short track specialist Jorien ter Mors tried her hand at long track at Sochi 2014 to great effect, picking up gold medals in the 1,500m and the team pursuit. A multiple European and World Championship medallist, the Dutch skater continued to switch between the two disciplines and made history at PyeongChang 2018, landing 1,000m long track gold and 3,000m short track relay bronze. In the process, she became the first woman to win medals in two different disciplines at the same Olympic Winter Games.

Initial skating success

Jorien ter Mors made her Olympic debut aged 20 in the short track events at Vancouver 2010, where she finished 23rd overall in the women’s 500m and helped the Netherlands claim fourth place in the 3,000m relay.

At the 2012 European Short Track Speed Skating Championships in Mlada Boleslav (CZE), she landed the 1,000m crown, and won two silver medals in the 1,500m and 3,000m. Two years later in Dresden (GER), she added victories in the 1,500m, 3,000m and 3,000m relay – becoming the first Dutchwoman to claim European titles in every short track distance – and also finished second in the 1,000m.

In total, the Enschede-born skater amassed a total of 19 European individual and team medals (eight gold, six silver and five bronze) and three ICU World Championship medals (two silver and one bronze) in short track between 2010 and 2014.
