With 24 days until the start of the 2018 Olympic Winter Games in PyeongChang (KOR), FIS Newsflash in collaboration with the Olympic Channel re-lives the most memorable moments from the past Games in Sochi (RUS).
In the men’s super-G in Sochi, Kjetil Jansrud won Norway's fourth consecutive Olympic super-G gold medal, with Kjetil Andre Aamodt winning in 2002 and 2006, and Aksel Lund Svindal in 2010.
However, it was Andrew Weibrecht (USA) who left the spectators speechless. Outside of Olympic Winter Games Weibrecht’s best super-G result was 10th in a World Cup race, yet he became the proud owner of two Olympic super-G medals. His silver medal at Sochi came as an addition to his surprise super-G bronze from Vancouver 2010.
Bode Miller (USA) and Jan Hudec (CAN) finished in a tie for third place. Miller, at the age of 36 years and 127 days, became the oldest-ever medallist in his discipline. It was Miller’s sixth Olympic medal, making him the most decorated U.S. skier.
