    Vancouver 2010 Olympic Alpine Skiing Women's Downhill Final

    United States skiers Lindsey Vonn and Julia Mancuso win gold and silver medals in Vancouver 2010 Olympic alpine skiing downhill. Austrian Elizabeth Goergl wins the bronze. Vonn put up a blistering run, finishing 0.56 seconds ahead of Mancuso, and 1.46 seconds ahead of Goergl. Those margins are a lifetime in alpine skiing - a sport often decided by hundredths of a second.

    YOG on the Road at FIS Nordic World Skiing Championships

    To be a Nordic skier, it takes steely determination, a lot of hard work and more than an ounce of courage. After all, throwing yourself down a ski jump or pushing through the pain barrier to complete a grueling cross-country course is not for everyone.   YOG on the Road made a pit stop at the FIS Nordic World Skiing Championships in Val de Fiemme, Italy, to ask some of these formidable athletes - including 2013 ski jumping world champions Anders Bardal (NOR) and Sarah Hendrickson (USA) and Nordic combined Olympic champion Bill Demong (USA) - what it is they love about their sport, and what are their hopes for Sochi 2014.   It was also a good opportunity to have a chat with some old friends from the Innsbruck 2012 Youth Olympic Games, such as Katharina Althaus (GER), Ilkka Herola (FIN) and YOG ski jumping champion Sara Takanashi (JPN), who also happened to win this year’s overall World Cup title.   Watch this space for more YOG on the Road videos coming soon.

    Jean-Claude Killy sweeps the board - Alpine Skiing

    After he won 12 of 16 World Cup races during the 1966-1967 season, French sports fans hoped that Jean-Claude Killy would sweep all three Alpine skiing events when the Olympic Winter Games were staged in Grenoble, France, in 1968.   Killy began by winning gold in the downhill, slashing across the finish line a mere eight hundredths of a second ahead of French teammate Guy Périllat. Then when, for the first time, the giant slalom contest was decided by a combination of two runs rather than a single run, Killy again won gold -- by more than two seconds.   Killy needed the slalom to complete the Alpine sweep. His second run kept him in the lead until the turn of his closest rival, Karl Schranz. But as Schranz sped through the fog, he skidded to a halt, claiming that someone crossed his path. Granted a rerun, Schranz beat Killy's time and was declared the winner. But a Jury of Appeal disqualified him and awarded gold to Killy.   Killy later served as co-president of the Organising Committee of the 1992 Albertville Olympic Winter Games and became an IOC member in 1995.
