Speed skating might not be one of the top sports in America, but almost everyone knows the incredible story of Dan Jansen. As one of the best American speed skaters ever, he was a heavy favorite to win at least one gold medal at the 1988 Olympic Winter Games in Calgary. But just hours before he laced up his skates, he learned that his sister had died of leukemia. He bravely competed but fell in both the 500 and 1,000 meter races. Then in Albertville in 1992, he again failed to medal in either race. Finally, in the 1994 Games in Lillehammer, he captured a gold medal in the 1,000 meters. Dan Jansen set a new world record in that race and dedicated his medal to his late sister in a truly touching Olympic moment. Now retired from competitive skating, Dan Jansen covers speed skating for NBC Sports and also works for the Chicago Blackhawks as a skating coach.
