WHISTLER, British Columbia (AP) - Carlo Janka of Switzerland has won the Olympic gold medal in giant slalom.
Janka had a combined two-run time of 2 minutes, 37.83 seconds to add the Olympic title to the world title he won last year.
Norway took the silver and bronze medals. Kjetil Jansrud was 0.41 seconds back in second, to jump from 11th after the first run, and Aksel Lund Svindal was 0.45 back for bronze, matching Bode Miller's three-medal tally at the Vancouver Games.
Miller skied out during his first run when pursuing a record fourth Alpine medal in a single Olympics.
