Wednesday Winter Olympics Update

Wednesday Winter Olympics Update
SOCHI, RUSSIA -

U.S. Expat Wild Wins Men's Parallel Giant Slalom

The husband and wife team of Vic Wild and Alena Zavarzina are both heading home with Olympic medals.

Wild rolled to victory in men's snowboarding parallel giant slalom, ripping past Nevin Galmarini in the second run of the finals to win gold for his adopted country of Russia. Zan Kosir of Slovenia took the bronze.

Wild's triumph came just minutes after his wife raced to bronze in the women's event.

Patrizia Kummer gave Switzerland its sixth gold medal in Sochi when Japan's Tomoka Takeuchi lost an edge halfway through the second run of the final.

Zavarzina had little trouble in the consolation final, beating Ina Meschik by nearly a second to win bronze.

Wild grew up in White Salmon, Wash., but applied for Russian citizenship after marrying Zavarzina in 2011.

Miller Tweaks Left Knee In GS, Unsure About Slalom

Bode Miller tweaked his surgically repaired left knee during the first run of Wednesday's Olympic giant slalom and said he's not sure whether he'll enter the slalom.

Miller was 26th in the opening GS leg, finishing in 1 minute, 23.64 seconds, more than 2½ seconds slower than leader Ted Ligety.

The men's slalom is scheduled for Saturday, the last Alpine event of the Sochi Games.

Miller owns a U.S.-record six Olympic Alpine medals, including a bronze in the super-G last weekend that made him, at 36, the oldest ski racer to win a Winter Games medal. He said Wednesday that his knee bothered him after that race, and it's been swollen during these Olympics.

He missed all of last season while coming back from a knee operation.
