Shani Davis came into Sochi chasing history, but also with at least one bit of unfinished business: to finally win gold in the speed skating 1500m. He’ll get another chance to do it on Saturday, as the live stream kicks off at 8:30 a.m. ET:
Davis, 31, won silver in 2010 and 2006, but this isn’t necessarily considered his best speed skating event.
He’ll face plenty of competition from Dutch skaters, in particular. Stefan Groothuis and Mark Tuitert hope to continue their country’s dominant work in 2014 with this event.
Davis remarks that this is the “race of kings,” so we’ll see if he can finally ascend atop the rankings today.
