I foolishly thought I could watch tonight’s speed skating without any spoilers. ESPN had their ticker on during the Notre Dame @ Louisville game. I thought wrong.
The gold medal in the men’s 1000 meter speed skating final was won by American Shani Davis for the 2nd Olympics in a row! South Korea’s Mo Tae-Bum, who won the gold medal in the men’s 500m two nights ago, finished a close second for the silver. Chad Hedrick finished with the bronze for the US, bringing America’s current medal total to 12 (4 gold, 3 silver, 5 bronze).
Congratulations to Shani for defending your Olympic title and I look forward to seeing how you won it later tonight.
