Sven Kramer flies to Seoul for prestigious Olympic award: ‘A great appreciation’

Sven Kramer has not been a professional since last winter’s Olympics and so the Frisian has some space in his agenda these days. That free time allowed the multiple Olympic champion to fly to Seoul to receive a lifetime achievement award.

For all his medals at the Winter Games, Kramer received the Outstanding Sporting Career Award in South Korea. Kramer received it from the Association of National Olympic Committees (ANOC).

“I am honored to receive the Outstanding Sporting Career Award from the Olympic movement today,” Kramer said in Seoul. “It’s a nice appreciation for my Olympic career, which started in Turin in 2006 and ended in Beijing in 2022. It was a journey with many highs, but also lows, which has made me who I am today.”

Kramer has an olympic trophy cabinet that will blow your mind. He won the 5000 meters in Vancouver in 2010. He also won Olympic gold at that distance in 2014 (Sochi) and 2018 (Pyeongchang). Kramer also won a gold medal in the team pursuit in 2014 and there were 2 silver and 3 bronze medals. Today he is director of Business Development at his former team Jumbo-Visma.
