SCHENK Arold (1944) Netherlands / Speed skating
A fall at the start of the 500 m speed skating event robbed this Dutchman of a hat trick at the Sapporo games in 1972. He did however win the 1500 m, 5000 m. and 10,000 m races.Schenk was the best in his sport in the late 1960s and early 70s, during which time he beat many world records and won three world titles.The only skater to occasionally frustrate Schenk's domination of the sport was his fellow countryman Cornelius Verbeck.
