2014 Olympics: Stunner At Sochi - Weibrecht, Miller Medal In Super G
TUESDAY UPDATE: Thick fog obscured the Rosa Khutor Extreme Park Monday, forcing officials to move the men’s snowboardcross event of the 2014 Sochi Olympic Winter Games to Tuesday morning.
ROSA KHUTOR, Russia (Feb. 16) - In an historic and seemingly improbable finish, Andrew Weibrecht (Lake Placid, NY) took silver and Bode Miller (Franconia, NH) tied for bronze in the men's Olympic super G at Rosa Khotur Sunday.
After taking the lead out of the number 13 start, Miller watched in wonderment as teammate Weibrecht put down a breathtaking run out of the 29th start position to claim silver behind Norway’s Kjetil Jansrud. It was the second tied finish at these Games. Gold was shared in the women's downhill.
