Rodriguez, also known as J-Rod, is the first Latina speedskating champion and is currently the World Sprint Champion … In the fall of 2001, she won her first World Cup Medal (silver) and then won a gold medal in the 1000 meters event at the World Cup competition in Salt Lake City … At the 2002 US Olympic Trials, Jen became the first American woman in history to earn a spot on the Olympic Team in all five events. At the Winter Olympic Games, Jen left an indelible mark, becoming the first Cuban-American to win an Olympic medal. She took the bronze in the 1000 meters and the 1500 meters … During the 2002-2003 season, Rodriguez won 14 individual international medals, 5 of which were gold … During the 2003-2004 season, tallied 19 international medals, 10 golds. She was the World All-Around Champion in the 500-meters, World Cup Champion in the 1000 meters, and won a silver medal and a bronze medal at the World Single Distance Championships … The 2004-2005 season brought more of the same. Rodriguez captured 14 more medals, and became the World Sprint Champion … Considers her greatest accomplishment to be her 4th-place finish in the 3k in 1998, "because I wasn't expected to be in the top 10, and I skated my best possible race at the best possible moment. That race brought me into elite status and I have been there since.”
Rodriguez made a dramatic and delightful entrance into the world of speedskating from inline skating at the urging of her then-boyfriend (now husband) KC Boutiette in 1996. In less than 18 months, she made the remarkable transition to ice to a fourth place finish at the 1998 Winter Olympic Games. By 2000, she was already considered the best distance skater in the U.S., so she shifted her focus to contending on the world level in the sprint distances.
When she’s not skating, her hobbies include snowboarding, jet skiing, cycling, playing paintball, movies and learning about WWII … Her future plans are to have a family and go back to school, although she isn't sure what for … favorite foods are pizza and chocolate chip cookies.
