Biography

Villy Haugen was one of the surprises of the 1964 Olympic speed skating events. Known as a sprinter, he had only placed third in the 1,500 m at the Norwegian Championships earlier that year. But in Innsbruck, he surpassed his compatriots to earn an unexpected bronze medal. A member of SK Falken, the club that also produced Hjalmar Andersen, Sverre Farstad and Jan Egil Storholt, the Olympic bronze medal would remain Haugen's best performance. He claimed 4 distance medals at Norwegian Championships, and represented Norway several times in country matches.
