Janesville native racing for gold
Photo submitted by Jill Schiferl Tucker Fredricks of Janesville had the fastest trial time of all U.S. speedskaters in the 500-meter race. Fredericks will be participating in his second Winter Olympics. In 2006 Winter Games in Turin, Italy, he finished 25th overall. Fredricks is a 2002 graduate of Janesville Craig High School and is the nephew of Todd and Kim Schiferl of South Wayne.
SOUTH WAYNE - Todd Schiferl hopes that his U.S. Olympic speed skating nephew will be the answer to a trivia question as the next gold medalist from Wisconsin. Schiferl, of South Wayne, will take a five-day hiatus from his carpenter job to make the journey to Vancouver to watch his nephew, Tucker Fredricks, skate for gold in the Winter Olympics.
