Biography

A native of Sydney, Kieran Hansen skated in three Winter Olympics but only competed once as an individual and was somewhat of a relay specialist on the world stage. Hansen was part of the 1991 Australian relay squad that claimed the World title on home ice in Sydney and added a silver in 1993 and a bronze the following year all in this same event. His Australian team was favoured for a medal at the Albertville Olympics but suffered disappointment when a crash ruined their chances in the semi-final. The team made amends at the next Winter Games in Lillehammer when they skated to a bronze medal, Australia’s first at any Winter Olympics. After retiring from the sport he has worked in the financial sector for companies such as IBM and Standard Chartered Bank. As of 2013 he resides in Singapore where, in addition to his business career, he helps coach local skaters.
