ADVANCE FOR WEEKEND JAN. 28-29 - In this Jan. 21, 2012 photo, Derek Parra speaks into a walkie-talkie at the World Speed Skating event in Kearns, Utah. Parra, 41, now oversees speed skating at the Olympic venue and runs everything from youth development programs to World Cup competitions. “It absolutely seems like yesterday. And I still cry. My heart still races when I show the video of me skating,” says Parra, who won 1,500 gold and set a world record at 5,000 meters. (AP Photo/George Frey) less
