Tons of stuff going on in day five of the Sochi Olympics. American skier Julia Mancuso, who won the downhill portion of the super-combined, earning a bronze medal overall, is a favorite to medal in the alpine skiing downhill today.
Elsewhere, Shani Davis has the chance to tie the American record for most career speed skating medals if he earns one in the men's 1000m. Men's hockey also gets its start, though neither the U.S. or Russia are playing, so you'll have to wait a bit longer for that rivalry to heat up.
The real story though will probably be the women's snowboard halfpipe competition. The halfpipe is already controversial; seemingly less a halfpipe and more of a hellish crater of snow and ice from which no man or woman can emerge unscathed. Will the American favorite Kelly Clark achieve what Shaun White could not?
12:30 p.m.: RESULTS: The Germans won the double luge because the Germans win everything in luge.
11:05 a.m.: RESULTS: Two quick updates from this morning. Stefan Groothuis won Gold in the Men's 1000m Speed Skating race. (American Shani Davis finished eighth.) And Eric Frenzel of Germany won the Nordic Combined. (That's ski jumping, plus a 10K Cross Country race.)
