There is a good chance overall World Cup ski champion Aksel Lund Svindal will be sidelined for the season because of a serious crash during downhill training earlier this week in Colorado. "If you're talking about the likelihood of his coming back to ski racing this season, it's less likely than likely," Norway team doctor Ola Ronsen said yesterday. Svindal sustained a deep gash in his groin area and underwent a 4-hour operation Tuesday to repair broken bones in his face. He also had abdominal surgery.

It ends a lawsuit over the death of Aaron O'Neal, a 19-year-old redshirt freshman who collapsed during a voluntary workout and died two hours later. The family of Ereck Plancher, a 19-year-old Central Florida football player who died while doing off-season conditioning drills, is suing the university, alleging that coaches and trainers ignored signs of fatigue that led to his death.

WHISTLER, British Columbia - It's no fun unless Bode wins. He's got to win some medal, any medal, to make the men's Alpine events fun. Austrian futility in the face of Swiss and Norwegian success might be the hard news on the slopes, but Bode Miller, the 2006 rebel without a podium, put these mountains on his shoulders. He had made skiing sexy again. Yes, sexier than Lindsey Vonn. Cowboy sexy. Downhill, hair-on-fire, do-it-my-way sexy. He's won three medals at the age of 32 in his fourth Olympics, the games where he finally is fulfilling his promise.

Maybe it's because his mom is here watching, but Bad Bode has morphed into Good Bode at these 2010 Winter Olympics. Bode Miller, the talented, free-spirited American who disappointed and misbehaved at the 2006 Games in Turin, Italy, has been a reborn skier and a perfect guest in Canada. Miller won a second medal here yesterday, improving on the downhill bronze he captured earlier with a silver in the Super G on a spectacularly sunny day at Whistler Creekside. Fellow American Andrew Weibrecht took the bronze, giving the U.S. a seventh multiple-medal event at these Games.

WHISTLER, British Columbia - Sometimes, what's too good to be true is as true as it is good. In the closest downhill in Olympic history, bad boy Bode Miller was good enough for a bronze medal yesterday. He shed his cold, calculating strategy and continued his heartwarming return to Team USA, only nine-hundredths of a second behind gold-medal winner Didier Defago, of Switzerland, and 0.02 seconds behind silver medalist Aksel Lund Svindal, of Norway. It was the first U.S. medal in the event since Tommy Moe took the gold in 1994.
