Day 9 at the Sochi Games only had four medaling events, which normally makes for lean storylines. Despite that, there were still some hiccups and competitions well-seasoned with the unexpected, especially in the men's super-G.
The Russian two-man bobsled team set a track record on the first day of their competition on their first run, no less.
