CareerEdit

He is a two-time World Junior Champion and represents the club Fana Idrettslag.

In 2011 he was 6th in the European Championships in Collalbo and 14th in the World Championships in Calgary. In 2012 he finished 7th at the European Championships, with a 2nd place on the 1500 m, and 8th at the World Championships.

At the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi he finished 5th on the 5000 m.[2] At the 2018 Winter Olympics he partnered compatriots Håvard Bøkko, Simen Spieler Nilsen and Sindre Henriksen to win the gold medal in the men's team pursuit.

At the 2018 World Championship in Allround Skating in Amsterdam, Sverre won silver medal after falling from a clear leadership position in the last competition, 10,000-meter. But for the fall, Sverre would have most likely been Norway's first World Champion in Allround Skating since Johann Olav Koss in 1994.[3]
