Sochi Winter Olympics 2014: Day 12 Medal Predictions and Results

American Ted Ligety picked up the gold medal in the giant slalom.

Ted Ligety was not afraid of his destiny. The American became the first U.S. skier to win the men's giant slalom, and that was the highlight in Day 12 of Olympic competition.

The United States had a chance to add gold in the women's bobsled, but it had to settle for the silver and bronze medals since the Canadian team of Kallie Humphries and Heather Moyse  took the lead on the final run and won the gold medal. The silver medal had to be a disappointment for Americans Lauryn Williams and Elana Meyers.

Russian skier Vic Wild sent the home fans into a frenzy when he won the men's parallel giant slalom, while Patrizia Kummer of Switzerland won the same event on the women's side.

Martina Sablikova of the Czech Republic scored a huge victory in the 5,000-meter women's speedskating event, breaking the ever-present stranglehold of the Dutch skaters. 

The Norwegian women's cross country team won the team sprint event, while Finland won the equivalent event on the men's side. Norway also picked up a gold medal in the initial mixed biathlon relay, trouncing the field by 32.6 seconds.
