Looks like a gold medal for Bode Miller in men's super combined
With all of the top skiers down the mountain, it looks like Bode Miller of the U.S. will win the gold medal in the men's super combined. Miller put up a time of 2:44.92 (adding his downhill and slalom times).
Ivica Kostelic of Croatia is second with a time of 2:45.25, and Silvan Zurbriggen of Switzerland is third in 2:45.32.
Norway's Aksel Lund Svindal, who led after the downhill portion of the event, missed a gate during the slalom.
U.S. skier Ted Ligety, the defending Olympic champion in combined, is in fifth place.
The super combined is a morning downhill time added to one run of slalom. The change in format, from two runs of slalom to one, helped Miller's medal chances.
Miller began his career as a brilliant slalom racer but, in recent years, has had trouble even completing two-run slalom races.
"I feel good," said Miller after the downhill run. "My slalom has been setting up pretty well."
