For the second consecutive day, speedskater Elli Ochowicz of Palo Alto barely missed qualifying for her fourth Winter Olympics.

Ochowicz, 30, finished fifth in the women's 1,000 meters Sunday at the U.S. trials in Kearns, Utah. The top four qualified for the Sochi Games.

Racing in the second-to-last-heat with Heather Richardson, Ochowicz fell far behind. Richardson won the event in 1 minute, 13.22 seconds. Ochowicz finished in 1.16.51 -- 0.08 seconds behind Kelly Gunther, who needed a personal best of 1.16.43 to qualify.

Richardson also won the 500 meters Saturday while Brittany Bowe was runner-up in both races. Sugar Todd, who placed fourth to edge out Ochowicz in the 500, had another personal best to make the team in the 1,000 meters.

Alex Ochowicz had a personal best in the men's 1,000 to finish sixth, but well behind the top four qualifiers. Stanford's Edwin Park was ninth after placing fifth in the 5,000 on Friday.

Shani Davis won the men's 1,000 in 1.07.52. He's the two-time reigning Olympic champion in the distance. Jonathan Garcia, disqualified Saturday in the 500 for failing to wear required timing devices, made the team in the fourth spot.

The Ochowiczes are children of three-time 1976 Olympic speedskating medalist Sheila Young, a Menlo Park schoolteacher. Their father, Jim Ochowicz, is a 1972 Olympian in track cycling who now manages the BMC Pro cycling team based in Santa Rosa.
