One of the closest races in Olympic speedskating history came down to a final lunge of the skate. Then came a few more agonizing seconds to figure out who won. Zbigniew Brodka knocked off all the favorites in the 1,500 meters Saturday, capturing Poland's first gold medal in Olympic speedskating by a mere three-thousandths of a second over Koen Verweij of the Netherlands. Shani Davis? He wasn't even close. Verweij skated in the final pair and powered toward the line, trying desperately to knock off Brodka's time in a race that requires both endurance and a sprinter's speed.
