Nils van der Poel
Olympic Champion, World Champion and World Record Holder Speed Skating
Nils van der Poel made Swedish sports history when he took the Olympic gold in both the 5,000 m and 10,000 m speedskating races in 2022. What sets Nils apart from many other elite athletes is his disciplined approach to setting goals and how he dares to go his own way.
Today, he can call himself a world and Olympic champion at 5,000 meters and 10,000 meters, as well as a world record holder at both distances with times of 6.01.56 and 12.30.74 respectively.
