U.S. OLYMPIC TRIALS: Matthew Forgues, 27, of Boothbay finished second in the 50-kilometer race at the U.S. Olympic trials in Santee, California.

Forgues, the 2019 national champion, completed 40 loops of the 1.25-kilometer course in 4 hours, 14 minutes, 44 seconds. Andreas Gustafsson won the event in 4:12:11.

Because no U.S. athletes have achieved the Olympic qualifying standard of 3:50, it’s unclear how many walkers will make the U.S. team. At the 2016 Olympics, only one U.S. man competed in the 50K race.



INDOOR: Isaiah Harris of Lewiston won the 800 meters at the Dr. Sanders Columbia Challenge at The Armory in New York.

U.S. MEN’S TEAM: Forward Jordan Morris and midfielder Cristian Roldan will miss the United States’ exhibition against Costa Rica on Feb. 1 and will report to preseason with Major League Soccer’s Seattle Sounders.

The U.S. Soccer Federation also said keeper JT Marcinkowski will report to the San Jose Earthquakes.


U.S. CHAMPIONSHIPS: Coming off illness and spending much of his days as a full-time college student, Nathan Chen shouldn’t have been capable of setting a personal best at the U.S. Figure Skating Championships in Greensboro, North Carolina.

Then again, maybe it’s wise to expect only greatness from the three-time defending champion and winner of the last two world championships.

Chen, who hasn’t lost an event since he struggled in the 2018 Olympics short program, soared far above the ice to win the short at nationals. His margin is so massive, 114.13 points to 100.99 for second-place Jason Brown, that Chen probably could power skate through Sunday’s free program and still win.
