Biography

Per Thorén competed in single and pairs figure skating. His greatest sporting success was his 1908 bronze medal, although he was a two-time Swedish champion (1905, 1907). In 1909 he was runner-up to World Champion Ulrich Salchow, while in 1905 he won a World Championship bronze and was placed fourth and fifth several times. After winning bronze in 1906, 1909 and 1910 at the European Championships, he finally became champion in 1911 in St. Petersburg. In his native domestic Stockholm, Thorén appeared at the world championships in 1913, but only in the pairs event with Elly Svensson. As reigning Swedish champions they finished fifth. Just one year earlier Thorén had won the Swedish pairs alongside Elna Montgomery. Thorén was co-inventor of the eponymous jump “Thorén,” also called the “Euler” or in English “half-loop.” The jump never asserted itself as an independent single leap, and now serves only in simple design as a connecting jump.
