Olympic Figure Skater. Born in Copenhagen, he was Swedish figure skater who dominated the sport in the first decade of the 20th Century. He established a record by winning 10 World Championships for men (1901–05, 1907–11). At the 1908 Olympic Winter Games in London, he won the first Olympic Gold Medal awarded for men's figure skating. In 1909, he invented the jump that bears his name the Salchow figure skating jump and Theresa Weld was the first female skater to perform it, at the 1920 Summer Olympics. He died at age 71 in Stockholm, Sweden. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
