Speed skating CHAD HEDRICK TV: NBC, 8 p.m.-midnight -- Chad Hedrick, who came to Turin with a chance to become the first man in speed skating to win five gold medals in a single Olympics since Eric Heiden, is still trying to pick up his second. He certainly shouldn't be disappointed if he leaves with only two. Expectations, the media's and his own, were unrealistic considering how he'd skated here. He won his first event, the 5,000 meters, but he never really had much of a chance in the 1,000.

SESTRIERE, Italy -- The wind may not be blowing America's way yet in the Olympic alpine events, but it's definitely blowing. With 3 1/2 events completed in the mountains, the United States has one medal, Ted Ligety's gold in combined, with possibly more wind chill to come. Severe winter weather turned Wednesday's women's combined event upside down. High winds forced the postponement of the shortened downhill in San Sicario Fraiteve after one racer, Croatia's Nika Fleiss, took off on a jump and almost got flipped upside down by a gust.
