Phil Taylor: U.S. snags landmark silver in Nordic combined

Around the final curve they came, Austrian skier Mario Stecher and American Bill Demong, battling for Olympic gold in the Nordic combined team event. The Austrians, a longtime Nordic power, were chasing their second consecutive Olympic gold medal in the four-man competition. The Americans, just rising to prominence in the Nordic, were trying to fulfill a fantasy. As Stecher shifted into a higher gear and pulled away from Demong to win the gold, it was clear that although the U.S. can run with the big dogs now, the Americans aren't quite ready to be the leader of the pack.
