Vancouver Games: Day 10
Bode Miller won the first gold medal of his Olympics career, taking the super-combined with plenty of flair -- roaring back from seventh after the downhill with a blazing slalom run.
Bode Miller now has three medals at these Winter Games and five for his career. The five Alpine medals tie him for the second-most by any man in Olympic history, behind the eight won by Kjetil Andre Aamodt of Norway.
Besides gold, the 32-year-old Bode Miller also has won bronze in the downhill and silver in the super-G.
"He looks happier, like he's enjoying himself," said Bode Miller's father, Woody. "That's what I like to see."
Defending champion Ted Ligety jumped from 15th to fifth in the super-combined with the fastest time in the slalom.
Ryan Miller made 42 saves to help the U.S. hockey team upset Canada 5-3 for its biggest win since the famous Miracle on Ice.
Brian Rafalski scored just 41 seconds into the U.S.-Canada game, then he scored again later in the period.
Goals from Chris Drury (pictured) and Jamie Langenbrunner put the U.S. up 4-2.
A pro-Canada crowd that came to cheer its dream team, only to see it upstaged by a bunch of unproven kids.
In a game in which Russia's Alex Ovechkin flattened Jaromir Jagr with a hit at center ice that also broke his visor, the Russians won 4-2 to claim first place in their group.
Evgeni Malkin scored twice for Russia and Ovechkin had two assists.
Switzerland's Michael Schmid won the Olympics debut of men's skicross, a cousin to the NASCAR-on-ice snowboarding race featuring four racers charging through a winding course filled with jumps.
Daron Rahlves (right) of the U.S. was eliminated in the first round of the four-man heats of skicross.
Canada's Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir won the original dance Sunday, taking a 2.60 lead into Monday night's free dance. Her dress, with its ruby-red skirt and lacy black bodice, was gorgeous. Made for a good prop, too, as she flipped it around to the beat of the music.
Americans Meryl Davis and Charlie White are in second place headed into the free dance.
Olympic silver medalists Tanith Belbin and Ben Agosto are fourth.
Reigning world champions Oksana Domnina and Maxim Shabalin, leaders after the compulsory dance, dropped to third following the original dance competition. <br>Domnina and Shabalin did tone down their costumes. The color of their bodysuits is now more beigey than brown. Some of the white markings they had on their legs and arms were removed or toned down. But he was still dressed in a loin cloth, and both were covered with leaves.
Germany's Andre Lange, bobsled's best driver won his fourth gold on Sunday, taking the two-man competition to become the winningest pilot in Olympic.
