Shani Davis Wins U.S. Long Track Speed Skating Allround with Second Place in Rare 10000-Meter Skate

roadskater's picture

Shani Davis showed his speed at all distances this weekend as he won the all around for the U.S. Long Track National Championships in speed skating. In his first 10k (10,000-meter) in two years, he managed second place, seven seconds out. Davis had already won the 1500-meter. Davis hopes to give it a go in Calgary for the World Championships Allround too. But long distances are not easiest for him, he says:

"I just try not to look at the lap counter," he said, smiling. "I think sometimes if you look up and see 18 or 15 to go, you can get pretty discouraged. I just try to zone out and just skate."

Sprint distances will be skated Monday and Tuesday.

Among the women, North Carolinian, Heather Richardson, continued great results, winning the 1500-meter, but Petra Acker won the Allround category and the 5000-meter.
