 Jimmy Shea Jr. Biography

James Edmound Shea Jr. is an American retired skeleton racer who won the gold medal at the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City.

Shea was the third generation of his family to take part in Winter Games. His father competed in nordic combined and cross-country skiing events in the 1964 Winter Olympics, and his grandfather, Jack Shea, won two gold medals in the 1932 Winter Olympics at Lake Placid in speed skating. His grandfather also recited the athlete’s oath at the 1932 opening ceremony. He was born and raised in West Hartford, Connecticut, and moved to Lake Placid, New York, in his late teens. He became the first American to win a World Cup race and a World Championship in the sport, and has won more World Cup victories than any other American. He retired in October 2005.

At the FIBT World Championships, Shea earned a complete set of medals in the men’s skeleton event with a gold in 1999, a silver in 1997, and a bronze in 2000 (tied for bronze with Austria’s Alexander Müller). His best overall seasonal finish in the men’s Skeleton World Cup was third twice (1998-9, 2000-1). Shea’s efforts and World Championship status assisted in the reintroduction of skeleton as a medal sport.

Shea has since founded The Shea Family Foundation which raises money to help kids in sports. He currently serves on the Utah Board of Economic Development
