SESTRIERE BORGATA, Italy -- The surprise winner of yesterday's super-giant slalom conducted his post-race news conference in perfect English and could boast this day of being "best in the world." It wasn't an American hanging gold around his neck, though, it was Norway's Kjetil Andre Aamodt, a Thor-like throwback who skied away a winner despite whispers shortly after he had arrived that he slightly resembled a plow horse. Balding, aging and out of breath has never been a recipe for winning gold in alpine skiing, but there has never been anyone quite like the 34-year-old Aamodt.

SAN SICARIO, Italy -- Usually in ski racing, the important numbers are first, second and third. Yesterday, though, at the women's Olympic downhill, the stories were first, eighth and 28th: First: Michaela Dorfmeister won Austria's first alpine gold of these Games -- and wasn't it about time? -- by racing the race of her life when she needed it most. Her winning time was 1 minute, 56.49 seconds. Martina Schild of Switzerland won the silver, with Sweden's Anja Paerson claiming bronze. Dorfmeister, 32, can retire now, at the end of this season, after having won everything in ski racing including an Olympic gold.

WHISTLER, British Columbia - Based on Olympic Alpine results so far, Austria has to be flat, like Kansas. The country's strengths are likely table tennis or microbrewing - it can't be Alpine skiing. As the Vancouver Games enter their last week, Austria's manly ski men have yet to earn a medal. They'll get their next chance in the men's giant slalom Tuesday at Whistler Creekside. With any luck, 45 guys will fall down and Austria can sneak in for the bronze. The women have two medals - the same number as one American: Julia Mancuso, who hadn't finished top-three in a race that mattered in two years.

Alpine skiing Whistler DOWNHILL Men, Feb. 13; Women, Feb. 17 Best of U.S.: Lindsey Vonn has won five of the six women's World Cup downhill races and may be the most prohibitive favorite in Winter Olympics history. She has 31 World Cup victories but is seeking her first Olympic medal. That goal has been thrown in doubt by a shin bruise that could effect her performances – or even keep her out of the Games. Julia Mancuso ranks No. 9 in the world with two top-10 finishes.

TED LIGETY TV: NBC, 8-11:30 p.m. -- In ski circles, he's called "Ligety Split." Everyone else these past two weeks has known him as "that other American skier." No, he's not Bode Miller. Ted Ligety is the one who's actually won a medal here in Turin. If you could see him racing down the mountain, you'd know exactly why Ligety Split is the more apt nickname. The American alpine skiers at these Games have been somewhat of a disappointment, but Ligety represents the United States' best chance to save face today.
