Ted Ligety has already won two gold medals in the skiing world championships - and that’s before competing in his best event, the Giant Slalom.

First he won the SuperG in Schladming, Austria, - his first win in any super-G.  France’s De Tessieres  placed second, and Norway’s Aksel Lund Svindal, who won three of the four World Cup super-Gs this season, was in third place.

Next, he won the super combined - an event in which the racer’s times in the downhill and a slalom race (two widely disparate events) are added. Croatia’s  Kostelic  finished second, 1.15 seconds behind, and Austrian Baumann placed third.

Ligety, who won four of the five World Cup races in Giant Slalom s this season, is the  favorite for a third gold medal in Friday’s GS.
