NORWAY — Kewaskum's Jordan Stolz is now the youngest man alive to win an individual World Cup race in history.

The 18-year-old who TMJ4 covered when he competed in the 2022 Winter Olympics won the 1,500-meter race in Stavanger, Norway - beating Canada's Connor Howe. Stolz's time came in at 1 minute, 44.891 seconds, according to NBC Sports.

“I didn’t know how anything was going to be. I had no expectations going into the race," Stolz told local media after the race.

A 17-year-old speed skater from Kewaskum is headed to the Winter Olympics in Beijing.

Last winter season, Stolz broke the junior world records for the 500-meter and the 1,000-meter races to become the third youngest American Olympic male speed skater in history. Stolz finished 13th and 14th respectively, as TMJ4 reported during our special Olympics coverage.
