Biography

Dan Jansen is a world-class speed skater whose performance at the 1994 Winter Olympics in Lillehammer, Norway, earned him the Gold Medal for the 1000-meter and set a new world's record. Dan Jansen was inducted into the U.S. Olympic Hall of Fame in 2004 and recently announced for the 2006 Winter Olympics on NBC.

The winner of over thirty World Cup races and over 50 World Cup medals, Dan Jansen is nonetheless probably best remembered for his surprisingly disappointing performance at the 1988 Olympic Games and the tragic circumstances surrounding it. A sports hero who has endured and overcome personal tragedy, his presentations are deeply personal and highly motivational.

A small-town boy from a solid family background, Dan Jansen achieved every young American's dream in spite of very difficult personal circumstances. The hardships he was forced to overcome along the way have made him much more than a sports hero -- he is an inspiration to each of us who must reconcile personal adversity with professional goals.
