I have nothing to watch today. Strangely, there are only 4 medal events scheduled for today. Watch out for those Germans. They'll be very strong in the medals table.

It is looking like the live feed from Eurosport will be available here:

It only works in Internet Explorer and you have to install a quick add-on called Sopcast

Yeah bummer. Miller is showing class congratulating him though. Svindal looks like the best in the world today. .28 second difference between him and Miller is same as the difference between Miller and 9th place. It'll be a huge upset if any of the rest can beat that time.

Is there anyone else left in the field that has the ability to pass both Miller and Weibrecht?

How bad was this guy's fall? It's been a long delay, and the radio announcers said he was being airlifted out.

It can be so hard to compare these falls, as so many skiers seem to get up after really scary crashes. On this one, the guy lost his balance in mid air and kind of slammed onto his back when he finally came down. My initial impression was that it was an exciting fall, but I didn't really think he'd be badly hurt. Of course when you see it in slow motion, it doesn't look good...

Official: Miller and Weibrecht - silver and bronze in Super G.

Good day for Norway. Svindal gold in SG, and gold for one of their women in the 15K XC pursuit.

NBC is obviously clamping down on live internet feeds. I wasn't able to find anything today.

I'm still watching the feed I linked to above. You gotta download that little plug in, and use IE, but it is working fine and is even better (I assume) if you understand French or Italian.

Edit- Once you are watching it on the plug in, there is a little button on the bottom of their little screen which will run the feed on Windows Media Player at medium screen size where the resolution is good.

I am getting the pic now but no sound. Some French girl just crashed in the skeleton and an English girl is leading.

Weird. I haven't seen any skeleton, which would be cool. I'm watching (only sorta) Curling between the Swiss and Germans.

It's too bad that I get the sense not many people care, but if amy williams wins this it'll be Britain's first individual Olympic gold medal since Robin Cousins in 1980.

Come the fuck on, Amy.

Can't believe Hollingsworth fell apart like she did, but there was no question who was best; 0.56 is a huge margin.

Something's missing here. Rebecca Adlington won a couple of solo golds in 2008 (400m and 800m freestyle), and there have been a bunch of others.
