- 2014 Olympic Winter Games, 11th in men's 10,000m, 20th in men's 5,000m
Over the past seven years, Meek has been training in Salt Lake City, Utah and has developed into one of the premier distance skaters in the country. A member of US National Long Track Racing Program, Meek focuses primarily on the 5000m, 10,000m and team pursuit races.
Skating has a long history for Meek’s family. Both his grandfather and father were avid speedskaters. As soon as he could walk at the age of two, he was on skates pushing a bucket. From those humble beginnings, he began a lifelong love for this sport.
Off the ice, Meek received his undergraduate degree in Political Science from the University of Utah, and is continuing his post-graduate studies at Ashworth College. He is an active supporter of Right to Play, and works part-time as a concierge at the Waldorf Astoria in Park City, UT as part of the United States Olympic Committee’s TeamUSA Careers Program.
