In long-track speed skating, he participated in two Olympics, and in 2002 he added a bronze medal to the USA’s medal table. After retiring in 2008, he became a coach in Milwaukee, and then he was contracted to home of speed skating The Netherlands, as an assistant coach and technician. He has participated in 4 Olympics as a coach. In recognition of his sporting achievements and professional work for the sport, his name was added to the USA Speed Skating Hall of Fame.
Today, together with his brother Cory Carpenter and his sister-in-law Kristin Carpenter, they manage their family business from the United States. The market for speed skating products is being expanded and developed with the cooperation of specialists in each segment.
