Events to Watch
Men's Snowboard Cross
The action in the women’s snowboard cross quarterfinals, semifinals and final resulted in fierce battles and devastating crashes. The hope from most Olympics fans is more of the same madness in the men’s event.
With the warmer weather in Sochi causing the course to become slushy once again—one of the main reasons there were so many issues in the women’s race—the focus on getting a great start will be at a premium.
The leaders will have the cleanest course to contend with and that advantage could be the difference between advancing to the next round and being eliminated. As seen in the women’s events, though, leading the race early isn’t always a guarantee that a snowboarder will win.
With top stars like Italy's Omar Visintin, Team USA’s Trevor Jacob and Nate Holland and France’s Pierre Vaultier all battling for the gold medal, men’s snowboard cross on primetime will be fun to watch.
Women's Alpine Skiing Giant Slalom
One of the fastest events of the 2014 Winter Olympics is the women’s Alpine skiing giant slalom event, and American stars Mikaela Shiffrin and Julia Mancuso have gold-medal ambition heading into Tuesday.
The women will have two runs to lay down their best effort and the combined time will be the deciding factor for the medals. With the temperature making the snow much harder to master, the possibility of fluctuations in time has all eyes focused on this race.
Add in other potential medalists like Slovenia’s Tina Maze, Italy’s Nadia Fanchini and Sweden’s Jessica Lindell-Vikarby, and this will be an intense competition that fans of the sport can’t afford to miss.
