February 12, 2022 – Kewaskum, WI – Jordan Stolz of Kewaskum, WI, who is competing in his first Olympics event, finished in 13th place in the 500m speed skating event at the Beijing Olympics this week.
Of the 500m race outcome, Jordan’s dad, Dirk Stolz, said, “Not bad. [Jordan is] the youngest [competitor] by four years and the only Junior skater in the world at the Olympics.”
“[Jordan] said that his start was a bit slow because he is getting out of shape with all the sitting around. It shouldn’t matter in the 1000m. He was only .5 seconds from first place,” said Stolz.
