Miller leads 2-3 finish for U.S. in Super-G

Posted By on Fri, Feb 19, 2010 at 3:01 PM

Bode Miller will have to wait longer in the 32-year-old's quest for an Olympic gold medal, but the flamboyant American added a silver to his collection today in the men's Super-G at Whistler, with little-known American teammate Andrew Weibrecht taking the bronze.

Those two were the closest to leader Aksel Lund Svindal of Norway, who finished the rutty, treacherous course in 1:30.34 on a day so warm that temperatures are the finish line were around 52 degrees.

Weibrecht, 24 of Lake Placid, N.Y., the third starter who never had finished better than 10th in a World Cup race, made it to the bottom in 1:30.65, which held up in the lead until Miller came through in 1:30.62.

One by one, the best Europeans took their shots, some coming within hundredths of Miller and Weibrecht, but only Svindal could beat them.

The result brings the U.S. up to 20 medals for these Winter Games.
