Career[edit]

Lorentzen has a 9th place from the World Cup races in Heerenveen in December 2011 as his best international senior result, and was awarded the gold medal for the 1000 m for the 2012 World Junior Championships after the original winner Pavel Kulizhnikov was disqualified for a doping offence.[3] Lorentzen represents Fana IL.
