< Previous Page

"I skied really well, actually," he said. "I mean, not amazing. But pretty good. Medal contention for sure, 90 percent of the course. I just had one major, major error."

Ligety will ski the slalom next weekend, but he’s not expected to challenge in that race. For him, it all comes down to the giant slalom, and he said he’s still confident he can leave Sochi with a medal. After all, he is the overwhelming favorite in giant slalom, as a four-time World Cup champion in the event and reigning world champion.

"I felt good about my skiing before this, and my skiing today was good," he said. "So I’ll have good confidence coming into that."
