Davis defends speedskating gold

RICHMOND, British Columbia (AP) - Shani Davis has won his second straight gold medal in the men's 1,000-meter Olympic speedskating.

Davis defended the title he won four years ago in Turin, when he became the first African-American to win an individual gold medal at the Winter Games.

Mo Tae-bum of South Korea took the silver Wednesday, 18-hundredths of a second behind Davis' winning time of 1:08.94. Chad Hedrick of the U.S. won the bronze in 1:09.32.
