Biography

At the 2006 Olympics he won a bronze medal in the men's 5,000 m event, Italy's first ever Olympic medal in speed skating. Five days later, he was in the winning team on the team pursuit event, to claim Italy's first Olympic speed skating gold. With a time of one minute, 45.97 seconds in the 1,500 m race, Fabris claimed his third medal and defeated American favourites Shani Davis and Chad Hedrick to become the first non-American to win an individual men's event through the first four races of the Turin Winter Games. On November 10th, 2007, he took the 5,000 meter world record with 6.07.40, which he lost one week later, when Sven Kramer skated faster in Calgary.
