Biography

Carol Eduard Novak

Carol-Eduard Novak (Hungarian: Novák Károly Eduárd, Hungarian pronunciation: [ˈnovaːk ˈkaːroj ˈɛduaːrd]; born 28 July 1976) is a Romanian road and track racing cyclist, who currently rides for UCI Continental team Team Novak.

Initially a speed skater, Novak lost one of his feet in a car accident in 1996. Subsequently, he switched to cycling and emerged as a professional cyclist. He took part in his first Paralympics in 2004, followed by two more participations in 2008 and 2012. At the 2008 Paralympic Games, Novak won the silver medal in the individual time trial, thus capturing Romania's first-ever Paralympic medal. At the 2012 Games, he reached further milestones by winning the gold medal in the 1-kilometre (0.62-mile) track pursuit event – the first-ever in the country's Paralympic history – and setting a new world-record time en route to the final. Additionally, he collected a silver medal in the road time trial race.

He has been serving as Minister for Youth and Sport in the Cîțu Cabinet since December 2020.
