Teodor Koskenniemi only narrowly missed the medal ranks in the individual races, finishing fourth in the 5,000 m and sixth in the cross-country run. But with the team he was one of the Finnish runners counting for the team score. In 1919, he was a Finnish champion in the 5,000 meters.

Personal Best: 5000 – 15:17.0 (1920).
