Oh boy! Congratulations to Shani Davis for setting a new world record in Kearns, UT Friday. Davis surpassed the old record by a fifth of a second (plus a hundredth) to finish in 1:41:80. 

I couldn't find any streaming video and didn't have time to try a proxy hookup to some streaming in the Netherlands (which could be short track for all I know, ha!). I think your computer will need a proxy outside the USA but perhaps outside of other countries as well. I'm assuming NBC owns the rights to exclude us from viewing even if they don't want to broadcast a world cup from the USA with a strong US team a year or so in advance of the Winter Olympics. We'll probably get a repackagement later, which is my thought about why it is not up on universalsports. 

If you feel adventurous, I'm not guaranteeing this link but sharing in case you want to try today (Saturday)...please share if you get something working...you can call me if you want!


Results for 1500m Men's here... after that is the link for the whole event...



Something might show up here...if Firefox or Chrome won't do it, get out the Internet Exploder for universalsports.com stuff.


Hedrick came in 5th, and young Marsicano, who finished 2nd is having a stellar end of season. "USA! USA!" as Solis would say in the park (and he does, even for us, as we plod along on our inlines).
