Shani Davis and Jessica Smith failed to medal in speed skating events Monday.

Davis, who attended Marquette High and Northern Michigan, finished 24th in the 500 meters with a two-run combined time of 70.98 seconds. The 500 is not Davis' best event. He uses it to help him prepare for the 1,000 and 1,500 meter events.

Melvindale's Jessica Smith failed to qualify for the 500-meter quarterfinals after she fell on the first lap of her heat. The skate of her Russian opponent appeared to make contact with Smith's skate, but the judges did not rule that the inclident was a foul. Smith will compete in the 1,000 and 1,500 meter events.
