Sometimes, the best victories are worth the wait. Speed skater Dan Jansen finally won the gold 10 years after his Olympic debut. It was an award he fought so hard for. After falling short in Sarajevo, Calgary in 1988 (racing the afternoon after his sister's death) and again falling short at Albertville in 1992, Jansen finally struck gold in the 1,000 meter event in Lillehammer in 1994. He dedicated the win to his late sister, Jane. Jansen had been cast as the favorite to win the gold medal for the event that year. It was also his final race at the Olympics before he retired from his career.
