The men’s Giant Slalom has just begun at Whistler Creekside, and American Ted Ligety is currently in fifth place.  Ligety was the first American to ski, as Jake Zamansky will ski 28th, Tommy Ford will ski 29th, and Bode Miller will ski 31st.  Miller will be looking for his fourth medal in these Winter Olympics, as he has taken home a bronze in the Downhill, a silver in the Super-G, and his first gold ever, which was in Sunday’s Super Combined.
