The U.S. is trying to end a women’s individual speed skating medal drought that extends back to 2002, an all-time best moment for the program. Richardson and Brittany Bowe might have at least a chance to reach the podium on Sunday, although recent results don’t heighten expectations.

Ireen Wuest (Netherlands) is the favorite by a considerable margin based on her recent results, including a gold in the 3000m and silver in the 1000m at Sochi.
