Biography

Martti Uosikkinen won two bronze medals in team all-around in 1932 and 1936. He was trained as a physical education teacher at the Sortavala Seminar and wrote several textbooks, some published posthumously. He was also an excellent skier and was selected to represent Finland in 1936 at Garmisch-Partenkirchen, but the Finnish Gymnastics Federation lodged an objection because of the risk of injury. Uosikkinen was killed in action in 1940 in the Finnish-Soviet Winter War in the Battle of the Kollaa, only days before the end of the war.
