Sandro Viletta of Switzerland surprised the field with a gold medal performance in Friday's men's super combined event from the Rosa Khutor Alpine Center at the 2014 Winter Olympics.

On a warm, sunny day, the 28-year-old moved up from 14th position after the downhill to lead all skiers with a combined time of 2:45:20 after the slalom was completed.

Ivica Kostelic of Croatia had set his sights on gold, but has to settle for becoming the first-ever skier to win medals in this event in three different Olympics. This time, he captures silver, while Christof Innerhofer of Italy gets the bronze.

It was another tough day for the American men. 2010 Olympic gold medalist Bode Miller finished in sixth place while 2013 World Cup champion Ted Ligety was 12th.

Final Results:

Gold: Sandro Viletta - Switzerland 2:45.20
Silver: Ivica Kostelic - Croatia 2:45:54
Bronze: Christof Innerhofer - Italy 2:45:67
