Biographie

Sigvard ERICSSON

In 1955, Sigge Ericsson became the first Swede to win the speed skating world title, beating the favoured Soviets in Moscow. Earlier that season, Ericsson had already taken the European title, in front of a home crowd in Falun. At both tournaments, Ericsson won the 10,000 m, and it was in that distance that he also won the Olympic gold medal. After gaining a silver in the 5000 m, he skated close to the world record, unexpectedly beating Knut Johannesen's leading time. Next season, Ericsson was unable to continue his successes, and retired. In addition to two more bronze medals at the Europeans (1954, 1956), Ericsson collected 11 Swedish titles: 1500 m (1954-1956), 5000 m (1953-1956), 10,000 m (1952, 1954-1956). His two titles in 1955 earned him the Svenska Dagbladet gold medal for the best Swedish sports performance of the year.

Personal Bests: 500 – 44.0 (1955); 1500 – 2:11.0 (1956); 5000 – 7:56.7 (1956); 10000 – 16:35.9 (1956).
