Svindal almost had that Super G and made a mistake two gates from home, doh. The French guy was actually a substitute for the team due to injury. Unexpected results!
This Swiss men have been poor without Couche and Feuz, but if Austria gets no downhill medal either they will not be happy (Italy seems to have had the most success after Svindal this season though). Of course Hirscher will be a major favorite for the technical events - I really hope his rivalry with Ted Ligety in the giant slalom continues through Sochi.
In other winter sports - biathlon world champs start today with the mixed relay!
