When the weekend began, just one-third of the 18 Olympic slots had been filled by members of the U.S. freestyle skiing team. Although the entire squad won't be nominated until Tuesday, the roster picks have been made a lot easier for team officials after four days of World Cup competition against much of the same international field that will be in Vancouver next month. But the sorting-out process also includes the sobering realization that the path to the podium, in some cases, is blocked by juggernauts.

Why aren't more people watching the Winter Olympics? The introduction of trash sports (snowboarding, freestyle skiing) and NHL players detract from the Winter Olympics.

No evidence of doping was detected in samples from 10 Austrian skiers who had to submit to surprise drug tests last weekend, the International Olympic Committee said yesterday. Urine tests conducted on the skiers - six cross-country skiers and four biathletes - turned up no evidence of the use of stimulants, anabolic steroids or even micro-doses of the synthetic blood-doping hormone called erythropoietin, or EPO, the IOC said. Follow-up blood tests either have been conducted or will be conducted on members of the Austrian team, the chair of the IOC's medical commission, Arne Ljungqvist of Sweden, said.

The U.S. ski team continued to underachieve yesterDay, failing to win a medal in either the men's giant slalom or the women's super-G. The team came into these Games with high expectations and have managed only a gold by Ted Ligety in men's combined. Bode Miller, who entered the Games as the poster child for the U.S. hopes, finished a disappointing sixth over the two runs of the giant slalom. Benjamin Raich of Austria won the gold, France's Joel Chenal got the silver and Hermann Maier of Austria took home the bronze.

SAUZE D'OULX, Italy -- At some point, Toby Dawson wants to find his parents, the ones who left him on the streets of South Korea so long ago. People over there have been helping with the search, and several leads have come up, but the 27-year-old put his quest aside for a more pressing matter. Skiing in the 2006 Turin Games. "It's very emotional," he said. "I didn't want to know until after these Olympics." Yesterday, Dawson took care of the task at hand, winning bronze in a men's moguls competition full of sparkling performances and intriguing story lines.

TURIN, Italy -- It should come as no surprise that Russians Tatiana Totmianina and Max Marinin are leading after the short program in pairs figure skating yesterday. The Russians have dominated this discipline for many years. However, the U.S. team of Rena Inoue and John Baldwin placed themselves in medal contention with a sixth-place effort. The strength of their performance was a throw triple axel, the first ever done in a short program. The other U.S. pair of Marcy Hinzmann and Aaron Parchem are in 13th place.
