Biography

Jens Boden, born in Dresden, was perhaps the biggest surprise of the first speed skating event of the 2002 Olympics. The 23-year-old broke his personal best time by 15 seconds and ended up in third place behind [Jochem Uytdehaage] and [Derek Parra], who both had skated under the World Record. Boden completed his excellent Olympic tournament with a fifth position in the 10,000 m.

Prior to the Olympics, Bodens best international performance had been an 11th place in a 5,000 m World Cup in the 1999-2000 season. Bodens only other podium performances are five bronzes medals at the German Single Distance Championships in the 5,000 and 10,000 m. He retired in April 2007.

Personal Bests: 500 – 39.38 (2002); 1500 - 1:55.49 (2003); 5000 – 6:20.15 (2005); 10000 – 13:23.43 (2002).
