American Skier Miller Wins Gold in Men's Super-Combined


American skier Bode Miller has captured the Vancouver Olympic gold medal in the men's super-combined event, which combines one downhill run with one slalom run.

After finishing seventh in the opening downhill run in Whistler, British Columbia Sunday, the 32-year-old Miller skied one of the fastest slalom. He finished with a two-run combined time of two minutes and 44.92 seconds.

Ivica Kostelic of Croatia took the silver medal, 33/100ths of a second back, while Silvan Zurbriggen of Switzerland took the bronze, another 7/100ths behind.

With the win, Miller now has three medals in Vancouver - the super-combined gold, a silver in the super-G and the downhill bronze.
