(AP) Shani Davis and Heather Richardson established themselves as leading medal contenders heading into the Sochi Olympics, winning the 1,500 meters at the U.S. speedskating trials Tuesday.

Davis already had qualified in the 1,000 the race he won at the last two Olympics. He cruised to victory in the 1,500 at 1 minute, 43.20 seconds. Now, he'll look to improve on the silver medals he won in that event at both Turin and Vancouver.

Richardson crossed the line in 1:54.19 to capture the women's race, beating friendly rival Brittany Bowe for the third straight time at the trials.

Brian Hansen finished second to Davis in 1:43.70. The other two spots on the Olympic team were claimed by Joey Mantia and Jonathan Kuck.

Jilleanne Rookard grabbed the third women's spot.
