Anice Das (born Mumbai, December 31, 1985) is a Dutch speed skater, specialized in sprint distances.

Professional career[edit]

Das made her first appearance at the Dutch single distance championships on December 30, 2005, aged 19. Since then she competed in nearly all Dutch single distance championships and Dutch sprint championships. She has achieved a slow but steady progress in her results, with her best results occurring at the 2017 Dutch championships (3rd place in 500m single distance, 2nd place overall in sprint[1]). In February 2017, she competed at the world single distance championships for the first time. That same month, she competed at the world sprint championships for a second time. She was plagued by illness, including fever, in the week leading up to the event. She did manage to improve her personal best on 1000 meters in both races, finishing 18th overall.

On December 28, 2017, Das won the 500 meter event at the Dutch qualification tournament for the 2018 Olympic Games, beating all expected favorites. On February 18, 2018, she ended in 19th place at the Olympic 500 meter event, after skating in the first run without having an opponent in the other lane.

Personal life[edit]

Das was born in Mumbai, India and was adopted by a Dutch family as an infant, along with her twin sister.[2]
