Winter Olympics spoiler alert: Bode Miller in Alpine slalom

Associated Press

Results of Bode Miller in the Alpine men's slalom.

WHISTLER, British Columbia Giuliano Razzoli has won the Olympic men's slalom, Italy's first Alpine medal in the Winter Games in 16 years.

First-leg leader Razzoli had a combined two-run time of 1 minute, 39.32 seconds.

Ivica Kostelic of Croatia was 0.16 second back for his second silver medal of the Vancouver Olympics, after being runner-up to Bode Miller in super-combined last Sunday.

Andre Myhrer of Sweden got bronze, trailing Razzoli by 0.44.

Defending champion Benjamin Raich was fourth, 0.05 off the podium, meaning that Austria's powerful men's team failed to win a medal.

Miller skied out just eight seconds into his first run, trying to become the first man to win four Alpine medals in the same Olympics.
