Biography

Erling Lindboe was a rather unmerited skater when he was selected to the 1932 Olympic team. He placed sixth in the Norwegian Championships in early January, but did well in the special selection packstyle races (third in 500, second in 5000) and was given a ticket to Lake Placid, but failed to make any finals. He placed fourth at the 1933 European Championships, better than his best national championships placing (fifth in 1935). Lindboe was from Trondheim, and served as a council member of the Norwegian Skating Association from 1956 to 1965.

Personal Bests: 500 – 44.4 (1936); 1500 – 2:25.0 (1936); 5000 – 8:50.3 (1933); 10000 – 18:19.6 (1933).
