As expected, the American speedskaters went another day without a medal. Seventeen-year-old Emery Lehman of Oak Park, Ill., finished 10th — more than 44 seconds off the winning pace. The high school senior got sick in a bucket labeled "Vomit Bin" after he was done with the 25-lap race.
"I've never really thrown up after a race," Lehman said, chuckling, "but might as well do it at the Olympics."
Patrick Meek of Chicago, who got into the 14-man field as an alternate, was 11th.
