"In the men’s Slalom - it’s the turn of the United States to upset the Ski-pole. Billy Kidd takes second place and his teammate, Jimmy Heuga takes third as Josef Stiegler of Austria wins a Gold Medal for his team. It’s the first win for the United States in men’s Alpine skiing."
Did you catch yesterday’s Men’s Slalom at Sochi? 50 years ago at the 1964 Innsbruck Winter Games, American skiers Billy Kidd (#10) and Jimmy Huega (#24) win the silver and bronze for the United States in the Men’s Slalom event.
