Becket finished in 22nd place in the 5000 m at the 2010 Winter Olympics. He missed one race because his mobile phone was turned off. He was the fourth reserve for that race and neither he nor the German team manager thought he would be selected. The Olympic Games officials attempted to call all four reserves after a skater withdrew just one hour before the race, but none four skaters were reachable.[1]

He has set eleven German records in the senior division, seven German records in the junior division and eight championship records. He was the first German speed skater to skate the 10000 meter under 13 minutes and the 3000 meter event under 3:40 minutes. At the end of the 2018-2019 season, Beckert was the highest placed German skater (27th) on the Adelskalender samalog table with 147.980 points.

His mother and five brothers and sisters all did speed skating.[2] One of his sisters, Stephanie, won three medals at the 2010 Games.[3]
