Kip Carpenter started out as a short-track skater, but switched to long-track in 1998. By the 1999 season he had already moved into the world's elite speed skating sprinters, winning bronzes in the 500 and 1,000 at the World Single Distance Championships. During his career he won 10 medals at the World Single Distance Championships, all in the 500 and 1,000, including golds in the 1,000 in both 2000 and 2006. Carpenter was known for his form and speed on turns, a remnant of his days in short-track. More than just a pure sprinter, he won the 2000 US Allround title. He retired after the 2008 season and coaches an elite speed skating club in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
