Christopher Kyle Carr (born September 15, 1986) is an American short track speed skater who has qualified for the 2014 Winter Olympics. The son of a nationally ranked skater, Carr grew up roller skating. In 2001, he switched from inline speed skating to short track. While still in high school, he moved to Marquette, Michigan to further his training. Carr made the 2005 Junior World Championships, and the senior World Cup team for the 2005–06 season. He broke his ankle at the 2006 Junior World Team trials and missed the 2006 Olympic Trials. Following surgery and rehab, he returned to skating but found he had lost much of his speed. After several tough years, he made the 2009–10 World Cup Team. Carr made his first World Championships in the spring, but missed the 2010 Olympics by a hundredth of a second. He had been planning to retire after the season, but decided to give himself another four years to fulfill his Olympic dream. Carr made the World Cup team every year from 2010–13 and helped the United States set the national relay record. In 2011, he won a bronze at the World Championships as part of the relay team. Carr finished fourth overall at the Olympic Trials, qualifying for the 2014 Olympics in Sochi, Russia. He plans to retire after the games and finish his degree in exercise science.
