Maria Lamb started speedskating after she decided she would much rather go fast than learn jumps and spins in figure skating. In 2005, she was the U.S. National Allround Champion and she holds Junior records in the 3000m and 1500m as well as the Allround Points National record holder. Lamb skated at the 2006 Olympic Winter Games in Torino in the 1500m and Team Pursuit. Although she was injured the season leading up to the 2007 World Allround Championships, Lamb ended up setting three personal bests and was one of the top finishing American women.
Recently, Lamb earned the 2010 Allround Championship title during the U.S. Speedskating Championships in Salt Lake City, Utah.
Lamb enjoys sewing clothes and costumes and plans to major in costume design. She also likes to cook, bake, read, bike, listen to classical music, play the violin and spin her own yarn from the wool and mohair from her sheep and goats.
