Maddy Horn
Maddy Horn was one of the greatest speed skaters of all time. She dominated the sport in the mid 1930's. At one point, she held the world record in seven of the 10 events in her sport. Over 60 years later, she still holds the record in the 220-yard dash. Maddy was the first Wisconsin woman to become the Woman's National Speed Skating Champion. She was selected as the only member of the USA team for the 1940 Olympics, but upon boarding the ocean liner in New York, was informed the games had been canceled due to the impending war. She won 65 of her last 69 races. Maddy was inducted into the Speed Skaters Hall of Fame in 1966.
