Shred away: Ted Ligety gets off to strong start in giant slalom

0 Comments

There’s still another run to go in the giant slalom, but so far “Shred Ted” did exactly that on Wednesday. The U.S. skier put together an impressive 1:21.08 first run, giving him a lead that exceeds one second.

Things didn’t go quite as well for Bode Miller, who finished with a time of 1:23.64. As of this writing, Austria’s Matthias Mayer and France’s Thomas Fanara are tied for second with 1:22.41 times, 1.33 behind Ligety’s eye-popping first run.

Again, there’s another run to go, so don’t hand Ligety the gold just yet. Here’s a live stream link for the second run, which begins at 5:30 a.m. ET.
