Who`s winning what at the Winter Olympics
Sochi: Who`s winning what at the 2014 Winter Olympics on Sunday
Alpine skiing - downhill
Austrian tyro Matthias Mayer stormed to gold in the blue riband men`s downhill.
The 23-year-old clocked 2min 06.23sec down the 3.5km-long course for the first Austrian downhill gold since Fritz Stroebl in the 2002 Games at Salt Lake City.
Mayer also bettered his father Helmut`s silver-medal showing in the super-G at the Calgary Games in 1998.
"Of course it means a lot to me," an emotional Mayer said. "It`s really difficult to go down the track without mistakes."
Italian Christof Innerhofer took silver at just six-hundredths behind with Norway`s Kjetil Jansrud claiming bronze, a further 0.04sec adrift.
World downhill champion Aksel Lund Svindal was fourth and another strong favourite, Bode Miller of the United States, was eighth.
Nordic skiing - Skiathlon
Switzerland`s Dario Cologna powered to victory in the men`s skiathlon, hanging on for the second Olympic gold of his career an enthralling final sprint.
Cologna pushed ahead of his rivals with a bold move before the final corner and just managed to keep his lead finishing in 1hr 08min 15.4sec ahead of an attacking Marcus Hellner of Sweden who took silver in 1:08:15.8.
Martin Johnsrud Sundby of Norway and Maxim Vylegzhanin of Russia engaged in a titanic struggle for bronze with the Norwegian winning by an inch in a time of 1:08:16.8.
Cologna`s gold is the second of his career after he won the 15 km freestyle at the Vancouver Games in 2010.
Snowboard - slopestyle
Jamie Anderson gave the United States a slopestyle double following Sage Kotsenburg`s victory in the men`s competition.
The four-time X-Games winner produced the goods on her second run with a near-perfect 95.25 score.
That pushed Finland`s Enni Rukajarvi down to second after her second run had produced a long-time leading 92.50.
Britain`s Jenny Jones held onto third with 87.25 for her country`s first ever medal on snow.
"At the top I felt nauseous and I felt sick," said Anderson.
"I thought `let`s go through what I`m more consistent with` and oh my god it paid off."
