Biography

Timothy GOEBEL

Known as the "Quad King" because of his jumping ability, Timothy Goebel was second at the 1998 World Junior Championships, but took several years to move to the top ranks in Senior competition. In 2001 he won the US Championships and placed fourth at the Worlds. In the 2002 Olympic year he was second at the Nationals, and the World Championships, in addition to his Olympic bronze medal. Goebel continued to compete through 2006, placing second at the 2003 World Championships, but failed to qualify for the 2006 US Olympic team and retired. The hallmark of his skating was his jumping, as he was the first skater to land a quadruple Salchow in competition and the first person to successfully land three quads in one program. After his retirement he entered Columbia University where he studied mathematics.
