Pentti Lammio made his international début at the 1939 European All-around Championships, where he surprised everyone by winning a silver in the 1,500, his only distance medal at the World or European All-around Championships. His best places in all-around at the World or European Championships were 12th in the 1948 Worlds and ninth at the 1952 Europeans. After 1939, the high point of Lammio's career was the 1948 Winter Olympics, where he won a surprising bronze medal in the 10K behind his teammate Lassi Parkkinen.

After his competitive career Lammio worked as a speed skating coach and also acted as a judge and starter at speed skating competitions.
