Demong began the ski race with a 2 minute, 18 second penalty. That's because his ski jump distance earlier this morning lagged well behind other athletes in today's competition.

Demong was a gold and silver medal winner four years ago in Vancouver. He'll have one more chance at a medal in the team relay competition on Thursday.
