Cecilia Törn (born 13 February 1994) is a Finnish ice dancer. With Jussiville Partanen, she is the 2015 International Cup of Nice champion, the 2017 Ice Challenge champion, and a three-time Finnish national champion (2016–2018). They won bronze at three ISU Challenger Series events and competed in the final segment at four ISU Championships.
Törn began learning to skate in 1999. Competing in ladies' singles, she made her junior international debut in the 2008–2009 season. After placing 27th in her first ISU Junior Grand Prix (JGP) event, she finished 8th in junior ladies at the Finnish Championships. The following season, she was awarded the national junior silver medal.
In the 2010–2011 season, Törn achieved her best JGP result, 11th, at the SBC Cup in Japan. In October, Törn placed 9th at the 2010 Finlandia Trophy — her senior international debut. She went on to win the senior bronze medal at the Finnish Championships and was selected to compete at the 2011 European Championships in Bern, Switzerland, however, her placement in the preliminary round, 14th, was insufficient to qualify for the short program. Törn finished 7th at the 2012 Finnish Championships.
Törn switched to ice dancing in 2013, teaming up with Jussiville Partanen. In their first season together, the two won the silver medal at the Finnish Championships behind Henna Lindholm / Ossi Kanervo.
Törn/Partanen placed seventh at the 2014 CS Finlandia Trophy and second to Olesia Karmi / Max Lindholm at the Finnish Championships. They were sent to the 2015 World Championships in Shanghai but were eliminated after placing 25th in the short dance.
Törn/Partanen began the 2015–2016 season by placing fourth at the Lombardia Trophy and fifth at a Challenger Series event, the Finlandia Trophy. Their first international medal, gold, came at the International Cup of Nice in October. In November, they were awarded bronze medals at the 2015 CS Tallinn Trophy and 2015 CS Warsaw Cup. The following month, the two became the Finnish national champions, ahead of Karmi/Lindholm.
Törn/Partanen went on to qualify to the final segment at both of their ISU Championship assignments. Ranked 18th in the short and 14th in the free, they finished 15th overall at the 2016 European Championships in Bratislava, Slovakia. At the 2016 World Championships in Boston, they placed 17th in the short, 19th in the free, and 18th overall.
On 7 July 2016, Törn/Partanen were invited to the 2016 Skate Canada International, their first Grand Prix event, replacing Federica Testa / Lukáš Csölley who withdrew. They started their season by winning the bronze medal at 2016 CS Lombardia Trophy and placing 7th at 2016 CS Finlandia Trophy. In December, they won their second Finnish national title, in Tampere.
In January, Törn/Partanen placed 14th in the short dance, 18th in the free dance, and 17th overall at the 2017 European Championships in Ostrava, Czech Republic. Ranked 24th in the short, the two missed qualifying to the final segment at the 2017 World Championships, which took place in March in Helsinki, Finland.
In September, Törn/Partanen competed at the 2017 CS Nebelhorn Trophy, the final qualification opportunity for the 2018 Winter Olympics. They ranked fifth in the short dance but dropped to ninth overall after the free dance, finishing as third alternates for a spot at the Olympics. They won gold at the 2017 Ice Challenge in November and their third national title the following month.
In January, they finished 15th at the 2018 European Championships in Moscow, Russia. In March, they placed 23rd in the short dance at the 2018 World Championships in Milan. As a result, they did not advance to the final segment for the second year in a row.
