Sequins and spandex and boas, oh my! Figure skating's medal winners hit the ice with a sense of satisfaction (and without pressure) in the traditional Champions Gala, a star-studded finale in Vancouver. Still trying to get some satisfaction are Steve Holcomb and his four-man bobsled team, sliding for the first U.S. gold medal since 1948. "We weren't the 'U.S.' team headed into Torino," he says. "It has been an easier and happier ride this season." His main opposition includes Germany's Andre Lange, who piloted both the two and four-man sleds to gold in 2006. Over on the ski slopes, Ted Ligety and Bode Miller are the American hopes in the slalom, an event in which the U.S. has won only a single gold medal (Phil Mahre, 1984). And snowboarding competition concludes with the men's parallel giant slalom, one of host nation Canada's strongest events. Also today are the men's and women's speedskating pursuit finals (NBC this afternoon), and the men's curling final (CNBC this evening). — Dave Roeder
