U.S. speed skating rosters announced

At the conclusion of the U.S. Speed Skating Championships Wednesday evening, the U.S. rosters for the Vancouver Olympics were announced.

The biggest surprise is Shani Davis, who decided not to skate in the team pursuit at the Games. Davis, who skipped the event at the 2006 Olympics in Torino, said in early December that he was looking forward to competing in the pursuit in Vancouver. He is the only U.S. athlete that will skate in all five individual events.

Below are the men's and women's rosters, courtesy of US Speedskating.
