Biography

The son of an Argentine father and a Brazilian mother, Horatio Torrome’s family relocated to London soon after his birth. His father Francisco became a wealthy tea and coffee importer and was also well known as a painter.

Although by then in his forties Horatio was the winner of the British figure skating championships in 1905 and 1906 and was runner-up behind Madge Syers in 1903 but, although asked to skate for Britain, elected to compete for Argentina at the 1908 Olympic Games. Torromé had previously skated under the British flag at the 1902 World Championships where he placed last of the four entrants.

He was also active as a judge serving in that capacity for the pairs competition at the London Olympics and also at the 1912 World Championships in Manchester.
