Top 3 Sports Stories of the Day

In a fitting way to mark to become the most decorated Winter Olympian ever, Ole Einar Bjoerndalen ensured his record 13th medal was gold Wednesday when he helped Norway win the first Olympic mixed relay in biathlon. Bjoerndalen broke the total medals record he previously shared with retired cross-country skiing great Bjoern Daehlie, and also matched fellow Norwegian's mark of eight golds. Bjoerndalen won gold earlier at the Sochi Olympics in the men's sprint biathlon. Bjoerndalen's haul is now 8-4-1. Dustin Brown banged in a go-ahead goal late in the first period and the United States went on to dominate the Czech Republic 5-1 Wednesday, earning a spot in the Olympic hockey semifinals for the second straight time. The U.S. will play the winner of the Canada-Latvia game on Friday for a spot in the gold-medal game. James van Riemsdyk gave the Americans a lead 1:39 into the game. Ryan McDonagh tried to clear the puck away from the front of the crease and it went off the left skate of Ryan Suter and got past Jonathan Quick. Ted Ligety won the giant slalom at the Sochi Games with a dominating performance Wednesday, becoming the first American man to win two Olympic gold medals in Alpine skiing. Leading after the first run, Ligety sped down the Rosa Khutor course in a two-leg combined time of 2 minutes, 45.29 seconds. Steve Missillier of France stood only 10th after the first run but had the fastest second leg to finish second, 0.48 behind. Alexis Pinturault, another Frenchman and one of Ligety's chief rivals over the past few seasons, was third, 0.64 behind.
