No three-peat for Shani Davis in the 1,000?

In a monumental upset, Shani Davis lost his chance at Olympic history when Netherlands’ Stefan Groothuis claimed gold in the men’s 1,000 meters, well ahead of the 31-year-old American, who finished behind the top group in eighth place.
Davis’ non-medal finish stands as one of the most unfathomable results of these Sochi Games: Davis had owned the event since the 2006 Torino Games, when he claimed the first of two Olympic gold medals in a row, and entered the 1,000 final as the favorite among a top-heavy list of skaters.
