The 2014 Winter Games continue Feb. 10 with more athletic competition from Sochi, Russia. According to information posted to the official site of the Sochi Olympics, day three will feature five medal round events across five different disciplines.
The first event scheduled to be decided is the women's super combined, featuring defending gold and silver medalists Maria Hoefl-Riesch of Germany and Julia Mancuso of the United States. Mancuso posted the fastest time (1:42.68) in the downhill portion of the program during the wee hours of Feb. 10, and enters the slalom round, which will take place at 3 AM Pacific, in excellent position to medal.
J.R. Celski will make his Sochi debut as short track speed skating's first medal event final, the men's 1,500 meters, is contested at 4:05 AM Pacific. Although Celski is the reigning Olympic bronze medalist in the distance, SkyBet gives him only a 10/1 shot at winning gold with five other athletes, including 2010 500 meter distance champ Charles Hamelin of Canada, ahead of him in line.
The third gold medal awarded on Feb. 10 will go to the winner of the men's 500 meter long track speed skating event, which is set for 6:55 AM Pacific and will feature the talents of American star Shani Davis. The 31-year old Davis is seeking his fifth Olympic medal.
The last two medal events scheduled for day three will be in the biathlon and freestyle skiing disciplines. The men's 12.5 km pursuit will kick off at 7 AM Pacific, while the men's moguls qualifiers will begin at 6 AM Pacific, with the gold medal round slated to start several hours later at 10:35 AM.
