Biography

In high school, Dan Immerfall was a track star; he was easily the top sprinter in Madison and one of the best in the state. But by then he had also begun to be known as a top speed skater – the sport at which he achieved his greatest fame. Immerfall won a bronze medal in the 1976 Olympics 500 metre event by a margin of only .02 seconds. Although he usually finished in the top 10 in the world sprint events, this was his highest finish ever internationally. Immerfall was a music major at the University of Wisconsin, and was an accomplished clarinetist. He supported himself as a music teacher during his racing career.
