USA Wrapup for February 21

Bode Miller used a brilliant slalom run to win the gold medal in men’s super combined – his fifth career Olympic Winter Games medal and first gold. The five medals are the most ever by an American in alpine skiing.


Team USA defeated gold medal favorite Canada 5-3 in hockey action on Sunday evening. The U.S. was powered by two goals from Brian Rafalski and the play of goalkeeper Ryan Miller, who stopped 42 shots.


Meryl Davis and Charlie White moved into second place after the original dance portion of the ice dancing competition Sunday. The Americans have an overall score of 108.55, 2.6 points behind the leaders, Canadians Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir, who have an 111.15 entering Monday’s free dance. Tanith Belbin and Ben Agosto maintained their fourth place position with 103.33, 3.27 points; and Emily Samuelson and Evan Bates advanced from 14th to 11th place.
