(AP) Shani Davis ruled again in the 1,000 meters at the U.S. Olympic speedskating trials, edging Brian Hansen on Sunday.


The two-time defending Olympic champion won with a time of 1 minute, 7.52 seconds in the next-to-last pair. Hansen came up just short in the final race, crossing the line in 1:07.53.


But the most poignant performance was turned in by Jonathan Garcia, who was disqualified the previous day in the 500 for not wearing his timing transponders, after skating fast enough to make the Olympics. He came back to finish fourth in the 1,000 at 1:07.96, good enough to claim the first Olympic berth of his career.


Joey Mantia is also going to the Olympics for the first time after taking third in 1:07.88.


Heather Richardson won the women's 1,000.
