    CALGARY -- Jeremy Wotherspoon remains committed to an Olympic comeback in speedskating despite a setback. The four-time Olympian from Red Deer, Alta., missed qualifying for Canadas World Cup team in the 500 metres Thursday In his first races since the 2010 Olympic Games in Vancouver, Wotherspoon needed a top-five result at trials to represent Canada in World Cup races this fall, but he finished 11th. The 36-year-old will race the 1,000 metres at the Olympic Oval on Friday, but the 500 metres is his specialty. Wotherspoon still holds the world record of 34.03 seconds set in Salt Lake City in 2007. The Olympic trials for Canadas long-track speedskating team are Dec. 28 to Jan. 3. Wotherspoon believes thats enough time to get his race legs back and compete for a medal at the 2014 Winter Games in Sochi, Russia. "As much as Id like to do 500-metre World Cups, its not my main goal," he said. "My goal is to build and build towards the Olympics. "I know theres still a couple of months before the Olympics trials. After that, theres a month and a half before the Olympics so, itll come quick, but its still a lot of days for me to focus and lot of days for me to build up to that competition." Wotherspoon announced in June he was coming out of retirement for another shot at Olympic glory. Hes earned more World Cup medals than any other man with a career 67. Wotherspoon won three 500-metre world titles and another in the 1,000, plus four world sprint championships during a career that spanned a decade and a half. He was inducted into Canadas Sports Hall of Fame last year. Wotherspoons Olympic silver medal in the 500 metres in 1998 is overshadowed by an absence of medals at three subsequent Winter Games. He was the favourite to win the 500 in 2002, but stumbled and fell. Wotherspoon was ninth in the 500 in both 2006 and 2010. When Wotherspoon announced in March, 2010, that he was done racing, he said then it would take a while to get used to the idea. The lure of competition and the desire to race for a medal in the Olympics continued to call to him while coaching in Inzell, Germany, the last three years. "I missed that feeling of excitement and adrenaline and then the relaxation you get after a competition," Wotherspoon explained. "Its a nice type of feeling to have. At the same time, Im committed to being the best I can at Sochi. I dont want to go there as a tourist getting experience because I have that experience. "I want to go there and be able to compete. If I feel theres no way I can go and compete, I dont want to take that spot away from someone else who could gain valuable experience." The mens 500-metre rankings were determined by the combined time of two races, but Wotherspoon stepped to the start line three times Thursday He was given a re-race of his opening 500 metres because the other skater in his pairing, Patrick Marsh, blocked him on the backstretch during the lane change. So after posting a time of 35.43 seconds in his second race, Wotherspoon skated alone in his re-race for a time of 35.69. "It was a tougher day than I expected," he said. "Its not a normal competition feeling when youre by yourself at the end. It feels a bit like the competition is over. "Its a good test, a good mental test. Even though Im old and experienced, it was a new experience. It was a good test to try and perform well under difficult circumstances." Edmontons Jamie Gregg, Calgarys Gilmore Junio, William Dutton of Humboldt, Sask., Laurent Dubreuil of Levis, Que., and Alexandre St-Jean of Quebec City finished first to fifth in the mens 500 metres. The Canadian trials continue Friday until Sunday. The top five racers in all distances qualify to race the first four World Cups of the season with the exception of the mens 5,000 and 10,000 metres, in which only three skaters will be named to the Canadian team. The World Cup season opens Nov. 8-10 in Calgary followed by stops in Salt Lake City, Astana, Kazakhstan, and Berlin, Germany. Olympic 1,000-metre champion Christine Nesbitt of London, Ont., has already qualified to race the 1,000 and 1,500 metres. She won the 500 metres Thursday. Reginas Marsha Hudey, Wotherspoons sister Danielle from Red Deer, Calgarys Kaylin Irvine and Winnipegs Shannon Rempel were second to fifth respectively. Ottawas Ivanie Blondin won the womens 3,000 metres ahead of Winnipegs Brittany Schussler, Ottawas Lauren McGuire, Brianne Tutt of Airdrie, Alta., and Edmontons Nicole Garrido. Saskatoons Lucas Makowsky was the fastest in the mens 5,000 metres. Torontos Jordan Belchos finished second and Mathieu Giroux of Pointe-aux-Trembles, Que., was third. The top 500-metre men in the world currently includes 24-year-old Tae-Bum Mo of South Korea, 27-year-old Michel Mulder of the Netherlands and 28-year-old Joji Kato of Japan. Wotherspoon turns 37 later this month. Canadas Clara Hughes won an Olympic bronze medal in the 5,000 metres at age 37 in 2010, but distance racing favours older athletes because of the years it takes to build up a big aerobic engine. Sprinting requires fast-twitch muscles and explosive training on and off the ice. "Time will tell, but I dont think Ive lost my ability to move fast," Wotherspoon said. "I feel like I just need to get it back." J. R. Richard Jersey.J. -- Michael Vick took off on third down, eluded a few tackle attempts and picked up 15 yards for a first down.

Now they know theyll have home-ice advantage throughout the Eastern Conference playoffs. CHICAGO -- Every NBA team wants to enter the All-Star break on a positive note and get some rest. The Chicago Bulls were able to do just that by winning their third straight. Taj Gibson scored 16 points and Carlos Boozer returned from an injury to add 15 in Chicagos 92-76 victory over the Brooklyn Nets on Thursday night. The Bulls (27-25) moved two games above .500 for the first time since they were 6-4 on Nov. 21. They have won four of five. "Were happy, but were not satisfied. Were hungry," said Joakim Noah, who had 14 points and 13 rebounds for his fifth straight double-double. Paul Pierce led Brooklyn with 15 points. The Nets are 24-27, going 14-6 since Jan. 1. "I think everybody needs a break right now," Pierce said. "Everybodys played a lot of games. Every team in the league has played over 50 games. I wish the break was a little bit longer, especially for us older guys. "But it is what it is and guys can go home or do whatever theyre going do over the weekend and recharge their bodies and get ready for a second-half run." The Nets pulled within three on Andrei Kirilenkos 3-pointer with 6:29 left. D.J. Augustin answered with a 3-pointer to start a 9-0 Chicago run. "Weve got to get to the point where were playing better defence, especially when Kevin (Garnett) comes out the game," Pierce said. "Thats seems to be one of our glaring weaknesses right now. We can sustain an acceptable level of defence when hes in the game, but hes not going to be able to play 48 minutes a night, so we have to have guys ready to come in and sustain the type of intensity he brings to help this team win." The Bulls shot 50 per cent to the Nets 38.8 per cent. Mike Dunleavy and Jimmy Butler each had 14 points for the Bulls, who are 15-7 since Jan. 1. "Were playing very well," said Boozer, who missed the last three games because of a strained left calf. "Its good to have a chance to have a breeak and get away and come back ready for the finish.dddddddddddd" Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau said Boozer was better than expected in his return. "A little winded," Thibodeau said. "Once he got a second wind he was very, very good." The Nets Joe Johnson and Butler were called for technical fouls and Johnson for an offensive foul after they exchanged words and had to be separated by their teammates with 5:57 left in the third quarter. Johnson elbowed Butler on the play, and Butler was restrained by his teammates before Johnson poked Butlers face. "I dont say too much, so if Im mad, you must have really done something to get underneath my skin," Butler said. "He poked me in the head then backed backwards. I dont think he wanted any of that. I dont play to fight, but come on, man, just play basketball." Deron Williams added 13 points for the Nets, Johnson had 11, and Shaun Livingston 10. Brooklyn cut the lead to 56-53 on Pierces free throws with 7:59 left in the third quarter. The Bulls extended the lead to 62-53 after baskets by Noah and Boozer and two free throws by Kirk Hinrich. The Bulls are 2-0 against the Nets this season. Chicago won 95-78 on the road on Christmas Day. The Bulls have won four straight against the Nets, who have dropped 13 of their last 16 regular-season games at the United Center. NOTES: Thibodeau said Gibsons minutes will remain similar to how much he was playing in Boozers absence. Gibson has averaged 19.2 points and 9.8 rebounds in eight starts. "For us to achieve what we want to achieve, Carlos has to play," Thibodeau said. "He has a big role on this team." ... Nets guard Marquis Teague was acquired from the Bulls on Jan. 21. "Hes been great," Nets coach Jason Kidd said. "Hes done everything that weve asked him to do. Hes only 20, so (were looking) for him to continue working and when hes out there on the floor to get better."
