Anna Fenninger makes it count in Sochi
Sochi: Anna Fenninger swept to Olympic super-G gold while the USA edged ice hockey rivals Russia on Saturday. Austrian 24-year-old Fenninger showed off her smooth and technically sound giant slalom skills, conquering the demanding course to clock 1min 25.52sec for victory.
Away from the action, there was a sombre mood at the Extreme Park when Russian freestyle skier Maria Komissarova sustained a broken back in a fall while training on the ski-cross course. It was revealed that Komissarova had undergone a six-hour operation to repair the damage to her spine.
