Four-time Olympian KC Boutiette is seeking his fifth Olympic berth, having previously competed in 1994, 1998, 2002 and 2006. If he accomplishes the feat, he would be the first American to skate at five different Olympics, while also becoming the oldest U.S. speedskater at age 47. At the 2016-17 ISU World Cup stop in Nagano, Japan, Boutiette became the oldest skater to mount a world cup podium with his silver medal in the men's mass start, an event that will make its Olympic debut in PyeongChang. Having come out of retirement in 2015 with an eye on the mass start, Boutiette's silver in the event marked his first world cup medal since taking bronze in the 10,000-meter on Feb. 28, 2004. With his eyes set on PyeongChang, he will strive to earn the first Olympic medal of his career in South Korea.
