U.S. Speedskating Triumphs
The U.S. hauled in medals, 34 in total, more than three times its previous best performance and second only to Germany. Eight of those medals came from long-track speedskaters at the Utah Olympic Oval. Casey FitzRandolph, Derek Parra and Chris Witty (top left to right) won gold (Parra a silver, too). Kip Carpenter, Joey Cheek and Jennifer Rodriguez (bottom left to right) each added a bronze (Rodriguez with a pair).
