Brian Wanek competed at the World Championships in 1988, 1991, and 1993-94, in addition to his two Winter Olympic appearances. Wanek was on the World Cup circuit in 1987-88, and 1990-94. His best international placements came at the 1985 World Junior Championship, when he was seventh in all-around, and fourth in the 3,000 m. Wanek graduated from the University of Wisconsin at Milwaukee in 1990 with an honors degree in computer science, and worked as a computer programmer during much of his speedskating career.
