Haralds Silovs

  • Sport: Olympic Short Track Skating
  • Nation: Latvia
  • DOB: April 7, 1986
  • Career Highlights: The Latvian's big day comes Feb. 13 when he should become the first athlete to combine the long and short track on one Olympic day. He will be racing the 5,000 meters in Richmond's Olympic Oval in the afternoon before moving to the Pacific Coliseum in east Vancouver for the 1,500 short track race. Don't count on double Olympic gold though. On the big oval, the 23-year old lags some 20 seconds behind the best over the 5,000. As a short tracker though, he won the European championship in 2008 and could challenge for an Olympic medal.
  • Olympic History: None
