MILWAUKEE (AP) — Brittany Bowe won the women’s 1,000 meters in a track-record time at the U.S. speedskating trials in Milwaukee to earn her third Olympic berth.

The 33-year-old skater from Ocala, Florida, finished first in 1 minute, 13.63 seconds.

Kimi Goetz was second at 1:14.89.

Erin Jackson finished third in 1:15.88. She was the first Black woman to win a World Cup event this season. Jackson's specialty is the 500, which is set for Friday.

Bowe is a medal threat in the 1,000 next month in Beijing.

Her lone Olympic medal was a bronze in the team pursuit four years ago in South Korea.
