Christine Nesbitt of London, Ontario and Jamie Gregg of Edmonton, Alberta might have stood on top of the podium Saturday at the World Cup long track speed skating competition at Calgary's Olympic Oval, but did finish in second and third place respectively.
According to the Calgary Herald, Nesbitt finished in second place in the women's 1000m with a time of 1:13.67. It was an amazing day however for American Heather Richardson, who posted a time of 1:13.09, to beat Nesbitt by 0.58 seconds.
Gregg meanwhile ended up in third place in the men's 500m with a time of 34.369 seconds, behind Jan Smeekens of the Netherlands and Pekka Koskela of Finland.
For Gregg, the third place finish was solid because he was in the fourth pairing out of ten and watched ten speed skaters unable to match his time.
Sang-Hwa Lee of South Korea won the women's 500m race and Shani Davis of the United States won the men's 1000m race.
The World Cup of speed skating will continue at Calgary's Olympic Oval on Sunday.
