Looks like a silver medal for Bode Miller in men's super-G and bronze for Andrew Weibrecht

With all of the top skiers down the mountain, it looks as though U.S. teammates Bode Miller and Andrew Weibrecht will win silver and bronze, respectively, in the men's super-giant slalom. It will be Miller's second medal of the Vancouver Games.

Aksel Lund Svindal of Norway will probably win gold with a time of 1:30.34.

Weibrecht, third down the mountain, finished in a time of 1:30.65, and that time held up until Miller, coming down the mountain 11th, put up 1:30.62.

Miller won a bronze in the men's downhill; Svindal won silver in that event. Didier Defago, who won the downhill, will not medal in the super-G.
