Career Highlights:

After failing to medal at the 2002 Salt Lake City Games and again in Turin in 2006, Wolf broke through four years ago in Vancouver when she took home a silver in the 500 meters with a two-race time of 76.04 seconds. Though Wolf finally earned a spot on the podium, she entered Vancouver as the sprint race favorite but finished .05 behind South Korea's Lee Sang-hwa, who will head to Sochi as the frontrunner to win the event. Though Wolf didn't have a medal to show for it, she set herself up for Olympic success when she finished 15th in the 500 in 2002 and sixth in 2006. She also placed 17th while making her Olympic debut in the 1,000 in 2010. Later in 2010, Wolf won her 40th World Cup race in the 500 to break the previous record of 39 set by Bonnie Blair of the United States. From 2007-2011, Wolf won five world championships, including four in the 500. Her most recent came in her home country in 2011. Wolf finished fourth _ .80 off the pace set by first-place Sang-hwa _ at the 2013 world single distance championships on the same Sochi oval she'll compete this year. She did not compete in the 1,000 during that event.
