Inspiring Winter Olympics Moments
Dan Jansen: From Tragedy to Triumph
At the 1988 Olympics, Dan Jansen was considered gold medal favorite in a long track speed skating. But on the day of his 500-meter race, Jansen learned that his 27-year old sister Jane Beres had lost her with leukemia.
Jansen struggled in his races. He fell in the 500-meter race that day and later that week again fell in the 1000-meter event.
At the 1994 Games in Lillehammer, Norway, Jansen made one final attempt on the ice. In the 1000-meter race, Jansen inspired the skating community with his first gold medal performance. He dedicated that medal to his late sister and took a victory lap around the rink with his one-year old daughter, also named Jane.
