About

Stojko who won silver medals at the Olympic Winter Games in 1994 and 1998. He also won World titles in 1994, 1995 and 1997. Known for his athletic skating technique, Stojko was only 18 years old when he became the first skater to land a quadruple-double jump combination in competition. In 1997, at the age of 25, he became the first skater to land a quadruple-triple jump combination in competition.

By age 15 Stojko was the Canadian junior champion. At the 1992 Olympics in Albertville, France, Stojko finished seventh because of low marks for artistic expression. At the 1994 Olympics in Lillehammer, Norway, a stunning program that combined his love of martial arts with a tribute to his namesake, American singer Elvis Presley, earned Stojko a silver medal. Later in 1994 Stojko won his first World championship, in Chiba, Japan.

Despite an injury early in 1995, Stojko repeated as World champion at the end of the season in Birmingham, England. At a skating meet in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, in early 1997, Stojko landed the first-ever quadruple-triple combination in competition. Later that year he won the 1997 World championship in Lausanne, Switzerland, repeating his quad-triple combination. Stojko placed second in the men's competition at the 1998 Olympics in Nagano, Japan.
