Saturday’s Highlights at the Sochi Olympics
Question of the Day
SATURDAY’S HIGHLIGHTS AT THE SOCHI OLYMPICS:
GOLD FOR THE AGES
Mario Matt becomes the oldest Alpine champion in Olympic history when he leads Marcel Hirscher in a 1-2 finish for Austria in the men’s slalom. Matt turns 35 in April. Kjetil Andre Aamodt had the old mark - the Norwegian great was 34 years, 170 days when he won the super-G at the 2006 Turin Olympics.
BIG SHOTS OF BIATHLON
Russia wins a record seventh Olympic biathlon relay gold medal after Anton Shipulin surges to the front on the final lap of the men’s 4x7.5-kilometer event, holding off Germany and Austria. Defending champion Norway led for most of the race but dropped to fourth after anchor Emil Hegle Svendsen missed three targets in his final shooting, denying teammate Ole Einar Bjoerndalen the chance of winning a record ninth career Winter Olympic gold medal.
Ukrainian cross-country skier Marina Lisogor fails a doping test, her country’s Olympic committee said. It is the third positive result of the Sochi Games, all tied to banned stimulants.
DEFENDING THE QUEEN
South Korea is protesting the results of women’s figure skating in which Russia’s Adelina Sotnikova won the title. The South Koreans believe biased judging cost Yuna Kim, the country’s beloved “Queen,” a gold medal. The sport’s international governing body has not yet received the letter.
PUSSY RIOT FALLOUT
The Cossack who horsewhipped members of the punk group Pussy Riot has been “held accountable.” Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Kozak would not specifically say what action was taken.
Two-time Alpine gold medalist Tina Maze says the Sochi Olympics - her fourth - will be her last. The 30-year-old from Slovenia tied for victory in the downhill and won the giant slalom in Sochi.
Marit Bjoergen became the most decorated female Winter Olympian, leading a Norwegian sweep in 30-kilometer cross-country. Her sixth Olympic gold gave her a career total of 10, putting her ahead of Russian cross-country skier Lyubov Egorova.
