No time to go into this now, but he's really doing great. Also Kristina Groves of Ottawa seems to be doing well lately. Not sure on the timeliness of these as they reference different locations.

The news may be aimed at the X vs. Y junk (now that elections are mostly over) between Davis and Hedrick, who joined with Trevor Marsicano to place 2nd in the team pursuit, but the most important part may be the photo (apparently from the 2006 Olys, eh?). </p> <h3 class="location-locations-header">Location</h3> <div class="location-locations-wrapper"> <div class="location vcard"> <div class="adr"> <span class="locality">Heerenveen</span> <div class="country-name">Netherlands</div> <span class="geo"><abbr class="latitude" title="52.956529">52° 57' 23.5044" N</abbr>, <abbr class="longitude" title="5.926219">5° 55' 34.3884" E</abbr></span> </div> <div class="map-link"> <div class="location map-link">See map: <a href="http://maps.google.nl?q=%2C+Heerenveen%2C+%2C+nl" target="_blank">Google Maps</a></div> </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://roadskater.net/shani-davis-shows-how-skate-full-extension-heel-push" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://roadskater.net/shani-davis-shows-how-skate-full-extension-heel-push#comments Roadskater.net 2008 ice 1000 meters 1500 meters Heerenveen NED long track Netherlands (NLD) olympics speedskating winter world cup team pursuit http://roadskater.net/crss/node/880 52.956529 5.926219 Thu, 20 Nov 2008 16:59:51 +0000 roadskater 880 at http://roadskater.net
