Biography

At the 1968 Olympics, Jennifer Fish was one of the American women who amazingly finished in a three-way tie for second in the 500 meters. In Fish's case, this was a bit of an upset, as her international experience was minimal. However she had, at one time, held eight U.S. national speed skating records. Jennifer Fish majored in health and physical education at Baldwin-Wallace College and went on to receive a master's in education at Kent State. She became a physical education teacher.
