Benjamin Raich ended his 10-day struggle at the Olympics on Monday with a gold medal in the men's giant slalom. The Austrian, who won the last two World Cup giant slalom races before the games, was fifth after the opening leg but won the gold with a brilliant second effort, crossing with a two-run combined time of 2 minutes, 35.00 seconds.
Joel Chenal of France won the silver, .07 behind, and Hermann Maier of Austria took the bronze, .16 back. Bode Miller, who was 12th after the opening leg, tied for sixth in 2:36.06 with Aksel Lund Svindal of Norway, reports the AP.
