MILWAUKEE (AP) – Brittany Bowe won the women’s 1,500-meter and Joey Mantia won the men’s event in record time in the speed skating trials in the United States to qualify for their third Olympics. Bowe finished in 1 minute and 50.32 seconds in Milwaukee. His enthusiasm was dampened by Erin Jackson’s failure to make the 500 team a day earlier. Jackson slipped during his 500m race and finished third, behind winner Bowe and Kimi Goetz. Mantia won in 1: 44.01, lowering Chad Hedrick’s track record. It was the first track record set by Mantia, 35, in her career.

NO DATE (AP) – Aaron Rodgers knows the Green Bay Packers clinched the No. 1 seed in the NFC and can’t improve their playoff positioning with a victory over the modest Detroit Lions. The reigning NFL MVP still wants to play at Ford Field on Sunday even if it would increase his chances of getting injured. The Packers end the regular season strong with five straight wins, gaining home court advantage in the conference playoffs for the second straight year and winning the NFC North for the third straight season. The Lions limp towards the end of coach Dan Campbell’s first season.
