Biography

What's good comes quickly. That certainly applies to Sven Kramer. When he was a junior and was skating for the Dutch Junior Team, he already became Dutch Champion allround and defeated renowned champions like Rintje Ritsma and Jochem Uytdehaage. After the Dutch Junior, Sven made the transition to the commercial skating team of TVM. Already in his first year, he skated to a world record on the 5000 meters. He also won Olympic Silver on the 2006 Games behind Enrico Fabris. From 2007 to 2011 Sven Kramer dominated international skating. He won four consecutive European and World Championships allround. An historic achievement! He was also a huge favourite for the Olympic Games in Vancouver, 2010. An entire advertising campaign was even built around him, betting the number of medals that Sven was going to win in Vancouver. With force majeure he won the 5,000 meters. On the 10.000 meter he was sent to the wrong track by Gerard Kemkers. A certain looking second gold went up in smoke. After an absence of one year, Sven Kramer returned to the global level in 2011/2012. During the winter games in Sochi 2014, Sven Kramer managed to win three medals: Gold in the 5 km, silver in the 10 km and gold in the team pursuit. In the summer of 2014, Sven Kramer will make the transition from the TVM skating team to the team of Jac Orie, Team Jumbo-Visma. Together with Jac, Sven headed for the Peongchang Olympics. Here he conquered gold in the 5km and bronze in the team pursuit. After all the misery with his back, Sven managed to take silver on the 5.000 meters and gold in the team pursuit at the World Championships in Salt Lake City in 2020.
