Gold and Silver Medals in the Olympic Downhill for Aksel Lund Svindal and Kjetil Jansrud make this day historic for Norway. And when Ragnhild Mowinkel wins a Silver Medal in Giant Slalom, the first Olympic Alpine medal for Norway since Garmisch-Partenkirchen in 1936, it tops this fantastic day for Norway Alpine Skiing.

World Champion Beat Feuz (SUI) wins the Bronze Medal in the Olympic Downhill.
