Is the Olympic bobsled/luge/skeleton run, adjacent to the Olympic 90K/120K ski-jumping stadiums, obsolete today, the last day of the 2002 Winter Games? Will some big real estate developer come through here and take what was Utah Olympic Park, attracting about 25,000 people a day for the last 16 days, and make it into Super Large Ski Run and Condo City?

The catch phrase for two weeks at the Olympics has been, "Ohno? Oh, yes!" But Saturday night at the Delta Center, short-track speedskating star Apolo Anton Ohno's name was prophetic for the U.S. team. It was "Oh, no!" in the men's 500-meter race, from which Ohno was disqualified, then "Oh, no!" again in the 5,000 relay, when Rusty Smith stepped on a lane block and fell, leaving the Americans to finish fourth, a lap behind the winning Canadians. Italy won the silver medal, China the bronze.

Fans flocked here Saturday to see history made in the men's slalom, and history, indeed, was made. It was not rendered by home-country favorite Bode Miller, though. It was etched in soft snow by a Scot, with a brogue, skiing for Great Britain. It was a strange day from the start-gate get-go, one that ought to be spliced and forwarded to "Alpine's Funniest Home Videos."

The Derek and Jochem show became a solo act Friday. In their two previous speedskating races, Derek Parra of San Bernardino and Jochem Uytdehaage of the Netherlands took turns winning in world-record time, Uytdehaage the 5,000-meter event, Parra the 1,500. Each finished second in the race he didn't win. Friday, they were paired in the 10,000, the longest Olympic race, 25 laps around the 400-meter track--but not for long.

Todd Hays was a man of almost no words Friday, but his silence spoke loud and clear. Hays had talked to the media through most of the Olympic Games, even after a mediocre first-day performance in the two-man bobsled left him in fifth place last Saturday. Friday in the first two runs of the four-man competition at Utah Olympic Park, the American driver recorded the fastest times in both heats for a total time of 1:33.26. That gave him a .

Not even a phone call from John Elway could make Todd Lodwick fly far enough to join the contenders in the final Nordic combined event of the Olympics. Lodwick is hoping to pull off one of Elway's trademark last-ditch comebacks, though. "Miracles have happened, and hopefully we can have one [today]," Lodwick said after finishing 12th in the jumping portion of the sprint competition Thursday, on the big hill at Olympic Park.
