More Matthias Mayer added his name to Austria's rich skiing lore by winning gold in the Olympic downhill before ever earning a World Cup victory. The son of an Olympic medalist, Mayer raced down the Rosa Khutor course in 2 minutes, 6.23 seconds Sunday to win Alpine skiing's signature race. Christof Innerhofer of Italy took silver, only 0.06 seconds behind, and Kjetil Jansrud of Norway earned bronze, 0.10 behind. Pre-race favorites Aksel Lund Svindal and Bode Miller, both childhood idols for the 23-year-old Mayer, finished fourth and eighth, respectively. Find more Wochit videos on Yahoo Screen. Less
