Biography

Norway’s Sverre Lunde Pedersen has speed skating in his blood: his father, Jarle, competed at the 1980 Winter Olympics in Lake Placid. The younger Pederson made his Olympic debut 34 years later at the 2014 Sochi Olympics, where he placed in the top 10 in all three of his events. His best individual finish was fifth in the 5000m. Pedersen had a breakout performance at the 2015 World Allround Championships where he claimed bronze; at the next year’s allround championships, Pedersen moved up a step and claimed a silver medal. He also picked up his first medals from the World Single Distance Championships in 2016 when he won 5000m bronze and team pursuit silver. Pedersen helped the Norwegian men to a second team pursuit medal, this time bronze at the 2017 Worlds.
