US Speedskating Olympic Trials.....curious story


Men's 10,000-meters.... only two participants.

Apparently a max of only 12 entrants are allowed in the Olympic event, so there is a stringent qualifying standard. The entire event at US Trials consisted of "Heat 1 of 1", with two racers, neither of whom was guaranteed a spot on the U.S. Olympic Team nor entry into the Olympics unless they hit a seriously challenging time.

And I thought NCAA track & field had draconian scoring rules...
