Sverre Haugli made an overwhelming international debut, finishing third in the 1950 European Championships. It would remain his only allround medal, missing out in 1951 (4th in the World Championships) and 1953 (4th in the Europeans). His best performances were in the long distances, and he gained a bronze medal in the 1952 Games on the 5,000 m. He was close to a second Olympic medal four years later, placing fourth in the 10,000 m. Haugli won the Norwegian allround title in 1953, when skating star [Hjalmar Andersen] was temporarily retired; Haugli placed second behind Andersen in 1951 and 1954. Haugli's grandchildren, [Sverre] and [Maren], also became speed skaters and competed in international competition.
