Ski - Hirscher edges closer to overall title
Yahoo News - almost 2 years
- Austrian Marcel Hirscher, who has already won the World Cup crystal globe for the giant slalom, safely negotiated the discipline's first leg to edge closer to the overall title. Hirscher, winner of five giant slaloms this season, finished sixth on the 1.3km-long Roc de Fer course, 0.97sec behind Norwegian pace-setter Henrik Kristoffersen. Hirscher's closest rival for the overall title is Kjetil Jansrud, but the Norwegian, who has already bagged this season's downhill and super-G crystal globes, is not a technical specialist. With a previous best giant slalom finish this season of 14th, Jansrud's last podium in the discipline was back in December 2011 and he didn't look like threatening on Saturday, finishing 2.10sec off the pace in 21st position.

Mayer leads Austrian clean sweep in Saalbach
Yahoo News - about 2 years
Olympic champion Matthias Mayer led a clean sweep of podium places for Austria in a World Cup downhill on their home snow in Saalbach on Saturday. The 24-year-old Mayer took full advantage of his knowledge of the terrain to win in 1:49.83 for only his second World Cup victory since the Lenzerheide finals downhill last season. Max Franz was denied his first top-flight win by 0.02 seconds and Super-G world champion Hannes Reichelt finished third on the Saalbach Hinterglemm course. I myself was close to the limit." New world champion Patrick Kueng of Switzerland finished a disappointing 12th, just ahead of Norway's downhill World Cup leader Kjetil Jansrud.

Jansrud in spotlight for men's downhill
Yahoo News - about 2 years
By Mark Lamport-Stokes BEAVER CREEK, Colorado (Reuters) - The spotlight at the alpine ski world championships will once again fall on in-form Norwegian Kjetil Jansrud, who is unquestionably the man to beat in the men's blue riband downhill on Saturday. As Olympic champion, Jansrud was the gold medal favorite for Super-G, the opening event on the men's program at Beaver Creek, but had to settle for fourth place after hitting the first gate and injuring his left shoulder. "His shoulder is beaten up a little bit but it's not too bad," said compatriot Aksel Lund Svindal, a five-times gold medallist at the worlds who finished sixth in the men's Super-G on Thursday. He will race on Saturday." Jansrud, who has yet to earn a world championships medal, won bronze in the men's downhill at the 2014 Sochi Olympics where Christof Innerhofer of Italy took silver and Austria's Matthias Mayer the gold.

Bode Miller Driven to Tears -- Did NBC Go Too Far in Post-race Interview?
Huffington Post - about 3 years
Cross-posted from Awful Announcing In recent days, NBC's primetime Olympic coverage is being viewed as a scripted miniseries under the veil of Olympic competition. The story of the Sochi games isn't as much about the athletes or the medal count or even the actual world-class sporting event taking place. It's about tugging at the heartstrings of viewers across the land and finding stories that will be talked about at the water cooler or the kitchen table. It's about drawing in people that care about the human interest stories surrounding the Olympics more than the Olympics itself. Primetime Olympic coverage has always been this way, but with the advent of more live access to the competitions in 2014, the depths NBC is willing to go to create drama and intrigue in primetime is becoming more and more crystallized. There are times when NBC does a masterful job of this primetime packaging, after all, only the NFL can surpass the consistent drawing power of the Olympics every other year. ...
