Defending Olympic champion Ted Ligety failed to finish the super-G here, but the American insisted he would mount a solid defence of his title. "I feel like I'm skiing well," the three-time former world champion said. At 33 years and 171 days, Ligety can become the oldest Olympic medallist in the event, breaking the record by Hermann Maier who took bronze in 2006 aged 33 and 75 days.
