  BY NAME BY NATION

Stephanie Beckert

  • Sport: Olympic Speed Skating
  • Nation: Germany
  • DOB: May 30, 1988
  • Career Highlights: In the wake of the no-show of multiple Olympic champion Claudia Pechstein, the Germans had better center their attention on long-distance prospect Beckert, a 21-year-old who has been showing great promise this winter so far. Coming into Vancouver, she only trails Czech Martina Sablikova over the 3,000-5000 World Cup standings. Count her in for a medal in both long distance races but gold might be too much to ask.
  • Olympic History: None
