    • QUOTES (1)

      • Women's downhill skier Carole Montillet-Carles of France responded to a fan who shouted "Carole, I love you!" by saying "Have you seen my face?" Her face was bruised and swollen from a crash during her training run on Monday. "I'm lucky to be married or I would never find a husband with a face like this."

    • NOTES (7)

      • Michaela Dorfmeister won the gold medal in the women's downhill, the first Austrian to do so since 1980.

      • The fast and difficult luge track at Turin continued to claim victims on Wednesday. U.S. medal favorites Mark Grimmette and Brian Martin crashed at turn 14 during the men's doubles competition. Grimmette and Martin were not seriously injured. Moments later, Oleg Zherebetskyy and Roman Yazvinskyy of Ukraine flipped over and went airborne. The crash tore off the front right runner of the sled, which a coach had to carry to the finish line. Yazvinskyy was flown to a nearby hospital with a head injury. Several women crashed during competition on Monday. Some racers say the track is too dangerous. Others claim that none of the teams were given sufficient practice time on the track before the Olympics. Others just accept that crashes are an unfortunate and unavoidable part of the sport of luge.

      • Both Lindsey Kildow of the United States and defending Olympic champion Carole Montillet-Carles of France finished their runs in the women's downhill. Both women crashed on the course just two days earlier on Monday during their training runs. Kildow fought off lingering back pain, while Montillet-Carles skied with injured ribs and a swollen face. Neither won a medal but both inspired onlookers with their courageous performances.

      • Three-time Olympic gold medalist Janica Kostelic of Croatia withdrew from the women's downhill skiing competition because of an irregular heartbeat caused by her lifelong thyroid condition. The 24-year-old won four medals at the 2002 Salt Lake City Games, including gold medals in the giant slalom, slalom and combined and a silver medal in the super-G. She managed to watch her brother, Ivica, win a silver medal in the men's combined on Tuesday.
