WHISTLER, British Columbia (AP) - Carlo Janka of Switzerland
leads the first run of the Olympic giant slalom race. Bode Miller
is out of the competition after skiing out.
Janka, the world champion in GS, was timed in 1 minute, 17.27
seconds. Miller couldn't correct his line coming out of a right-hand gate
in the second half of his run, after almost crashing in the top half.
Romed Baumann of Austria was second, 0.02 second behind, and
Norway's Aksel Lund Svindal, was 0.16 back in third. Svindal already has a gold medal in super-G and a silver in downhill.
Pre-race favorite Ted Ligety of the United States trailed Janka by 0.60.
