Another Track Record for Jordan Stolz on Day Three of Long Track Olympic Trials

By Eric Goodman - NBC Olympics | Jan. 08, 2022, 12:20 a.m. (ET)

With only one guaranteed Olympic Team spot on the line in the men's 500m, 17-year-old Jordan Stolz backed up his breakout performance in Thursday's 1000m to win his second event in as many days.

Skating at his home training center, Stolz clocked in at 34.55 for the win. No other skater managed to break 35 seconds. Stolz now shifts his focus to February's Winter Olympics, with an additional three weeks of training to accelerate his meteoric rise in speed.

22-year-old former hockey player Austin Kleba swiped the second place finish in 35.17. Should enough U.S. men double-up in events, a spot on Team USA could open up for Kleba.

Results:
Jordan Stolz - 34.55
Austin Kleba - 35.17
Cooper McLeod - 35.22
