Whistler, BC, Feb 19, 2010 — The Winter Olympics in Vancouver are just about halfway done. There are just four medal events on the schedule today, and they're all being held at Whistler. First up is the men's Super G. Bode Miller will be looking for his second medal of these games. In cross-country skiing, the women compete in the 15 kilometer pursuit. Finally, at the Whistler Sliding Center, both the women and the men will complete the skeleton.
Weather forecasts look good, if a tad warm. After a cold night, skies should be clear with highs in the low 40s.
Overall, the US team is leading the medal count. Last night, figure skater Evan Lysacek added to the gold medal count, the first American to win gold since Brian Boitano in 1988.
