Stanislav Bohonek was born December 28, 1952 in Prague, Czechoslovakia. His brother, Jan, was born about three years later. The family moved to Toronto, Canada in 1968 due to the Warsaw Pact invasion of Czechoslovakia.
Skating career and later life
Bohonek won the bronze medal at the 1975 Canadian Championships. After repeating as national bronze medalist the following year, he was named in Canada's team to the 1976 Winter Olympics. He placed 14th in men's single skating at the event in Innsbruck, Austria.
In the 1976–77 season, Bohonek withdrew from the Ontario-Quebec divisionals due to a tender achilles tendon in his left foot.
After graduating from the University of Toronto with a bachelor's degree in biology, Bohonek obtained a master's degree in biology at Cleveland State University. He then studied at Case Western Reserve University's dental school, graduating in 1987, and opened a private practice in Westlake, Ohio in 1989. With his brother, he wrote and illustrated a children's book about dental health.
