Aksel Lund Svindal of Norway won the super-G title, denying Ameican Bode Miller his first Olympic gold medal. Svindal won in one minute 30.34 seconds on a tough, icy track that gave many racers problems staying within the painted blue lines guiding the course. Miller was second, trailing by 0.28 seconds, and Andrew Weibrecht of the United States was 0.31 behind Svindal in third.

Jon Montgomery, the redhead with the scruffy beard and penchant for speed, won the Olympic gold medal in men's skeleton, snatching it away from Latvia's Martins Dukurs, who had been nearly flawless during three heats but made a critical mistake within feet of the finish.

It takes two to tango, and the best at the Olympics were world champions Oksana Domnina and Maxim Shabalin. The couple won the compulsory dance, an exercise -- some say it's monotonous -- to repetitive music that began the ice dancing competition.
