History[edit]

It was founded on 24 March 1909[1] as Arbeidernes TIF ("Workers' Gymnastics and Sports Association"), and in 1916 it changed its name to Fagforeningernes TIF ("Trade Unions' Gymnastics and Sports Association").[2] It was the first explicit workers' sports club in Norway, founded 15 years before the creation of a nationwide Workers' Federation of Sports.[3]

The club helped spur the creation of the Workers' Federation of Sports, because in the 1920s, the Norwegian Wrestling Federation banned fifteen members of the club for taking part in a "politicized" wrestling meet where "The Internationale" was played and red flags were flown.[4] Nonetheless, the club was not a member of the Workers' Federation of Sports for long, as it left the Workers' Federation of Sports already in 1926.[5] It was renamed to the more neutral SK av 1909 ("Sports Club of 1909") already in 1929.[2] Its headquarters are at Dælenenga.[1]

Well-known amateur wrestlers include Martin Egeberg (1924 and 1928 Olympian),[6] Birger Nilsen (1928 Olympian),[7] Tore Hem (1968, 1972 and 1976 Olympian),[8] Harald Barlie (1960, 1964, 1968 and 1972 Olympian),[9] Lars Rønningen (1984, 1988 and 1992 Olympian),[10][11] Ronny Sigde (1984 and 1988 Olympian),[12] Harald Hervig (1960 Olympian),[13] Håkon Øverby (1968 and 1972 Olympian),[14] Alfred Larsen (1928 Olympian),[15] Kaare Larsen (1948 Olympian)[16] and Ivar Stokke (1936 Olympian),[17]

Well-known amateur boxers include Leif Hansen (1952 Olympian),[18] Roy Askevold (1960 Olympian),[19] Haakon Lind (1928 Olympian)[20] and Olav Nilsen (1928 Olympian).[21] The King's Cup in boxing has been taken by Haakon Lind in 1928, Thorstein Myhre in 1933, Sigurd Larsen in 1934, Leif Hansen in 1953 and Roy Askevold in 1959.[22]

In athletics the club saw its heyday in the 1910s. Erling Aastad became Norwegian long jump champion in 1920 and won medals in 1918 and 1921.[23] Victor Pettersen won silver medals in shot put with both hands (1912) and high jump (1914), and also bronze medals in shot put (1914) and decathlon (1914).[24][25][26] Fredrik Martinsen won a silver medal in triple jump (1918)[27] and Øivind Jensen a bronze in the pole vault (1912).[28]
