BEIJING, CHINA - JANUARY 31: Brittany Bowe of Team United States looks on during a speed skating practice session ahead of the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympic Games at National Speed Skating Oval on January 31, 2022 in Beijing, China.

BEIJING (AP) — Brittany Bowe is having quite an Olympics — before she even hits the ice.

First, she reclaimed another speedskating race in Beijing when a third spot opened up for the Americans in the 500 meters.

Bowe finished first in the that event at the U.S. trials, but gave up her spot to ensure Erin Jackson could race at the Winter Games.

Then, Bowe was selected to be one of the U.S. flagbearers in the opening ceremony at the Bird’s Nest stadium.

The original choice, bobsledder Elana Meyers Taylor, was forced into isolation by a positive COVID-19 test.
