Its arguably the first marquee event of every Winter Olympics, and the mens downhill in recent Olympics has provided surprising storylines. “The one thing about the Olympics especially in the speed disciplines, it so very rarely goes to the favourite, the favourite has so much pressure, and the variables are greater in downhill,” says CBC alpine analyst Kerrin Lee-Gartner, a 1992 downhill winner. “ Its not to say its a flukey thing, its just that everything has to align right, its harder for the favourite to make it align right in downhill.” In the last 20 years there have been four Olympic downhill winners who had fewer than three World Cup victories before making history: Tommy Moe of the U.S., Frenchmen Jean-Luc Cretier and Antoine Deneriaz, and 2010 winner Didier Defago of Switzerland. The Canadian Cowboys - Erik Guay, Manuel Osborne-Paradis and Jan Hudec - wouldnt qualify as surprise winners from an individual standpoint, but breaking a 20-year Olympic medal drought for the country in alpine skiing certainly would make fans take notice. No Canadian man has ever won a gold or silver medal in alpine. Steve Podborski (1980) and Ed Podivinsky (1994) each won bronze in the downhill. Guay is the likeliest contender to break through. Hes achieved two of his three career goals after winning a Crystal Globe season title in the super-G in 2010 and winning a world championship in downhill a year later. The Mont-Tremblant, Que., native is only missing an Olympic medal, preferably gold, after three separate top five finishes at the Winter Games. Guay has battled back this season from a knee injury to break Podborskis World Cup podium record for Canadian men. He finished seventh in the opening training session on Thursday. Hudec, he of the seven knee surgeries and more recent back injury, has also reached the podium this season. The Calgary native took silver in the super-G in Val Gardena, Italy in December. Osborne-Paradis is waiting to take that next step. Since coming back in late 2012 from a knee injury, the North Vancouver native has had top 10 finishes, but has been unable to reach the podium. Ben Thomsen of Invermere, B.C., finished second on a slightly different Sochi course two years ago, but hes struggled mightily this season.There are two strong international contenders to buck the recent trend of surprise Olympic downhill champs. Aksel Lund Svindal of Norway, who won a medal of every colour in Vancouver, has run his total of World Cup downhill wins to eight this season with a pair of victories. Bode Miller of the United States has wowed ski fans again this season, coming back at the age of 36 after more than a year off to reach the World Cup podium once each in downhill, super-G and giant slalom. Millers yet to win since his comeback, but coming up golden for a sixth career Olympic medal would be just his style. The following men would also not be surprise winners: Dominik Paris and Christof Innerhofer of Italy, Adrian Theaux of France and Patrick Kueng of Switzerland. Even 36-year-old Didier Defago put his name into consideration again after his first victory in over two years last month, a super-G at Kitzbuehel. The lengthy course has received mostly positive feedback from the skiers, with many remarking on the "big air" jumps. 2010 Olympic downhill: Didier Defago, Switzerland (G), Aksel Lund Svindal, Norway (S), Bode Miller, USA (B) Olympic alpine skiing schedule: Sunday, Feb. 9: Mens downhill Monday, Feb. 10: Womens super-combined Wednesday, Feb. 12: Womens downhill Friday, Feb. 14: Mens super-combined Saturday, Feb. 15: Womens super-G Sunday, Feb. 16: Mens super-G Tuesday, Feb. 18: Womens giant slalom Wednesday, Feb. 19: Mens giant slalom Friday, Feb. 21: Womens slalom Saturday, Feb. 22: Mens slalom Adidas Gazelle ανδρικα .

Michael Hutchinson will start his second straight game in goal.Bubba Watson hopes an inspirational talk can help him claim at least one victory in three of the most important weeks of his season. Watson tees off in the PGA Championship at Baltusrol on Thursday and then plays in the Travelers Championship, an event close to his heart, before flying off to Rio to take part in the Olympic Games in the middle of August.The left-hander, along with Olympic team-mates Patrick Reed, Matt Kuchar and Rickie Fowler, spoke with Winter Olympic gold medalist Dan Jansen to get some idea of what they can expect next month. He won speed-skating gold in 1994, six years after his sister Jane - who inspired him to take up the sport - died from leukaemia.Jansens is a story that resonates with Watson, whose father Gerry died in 2010 after a battle with throat cancer and was the inspiration behind his own charity ventures.Dan, hes a legend. When you look at Olympic sports, hes a legend for America, Watson said. Some of the things that he battled, he talked about what he battled.Not just winning. Who cares about winning a medal? Just what he battled trying to get there, what he battled in family life and things like that. It was pretty amazing to hear his stories and how he came through it.And then when you saw some of the videos that they showed us, and then trying on all the clothes, we became little kids real fast. Cant wait to get there. Because just talking to a legend like that and watching some of the videos, it was pretty special. Watson hopes to have been inspired by a talk from Winter Olympian Dan Jansen Hes there to cheer you up and get you excited about it. But were all four of us pretty passionate about it. Any time you can play and represent your country to that higher level, its pretty special.Watsons packed schedule sees him move north to River Highlands for the Travelers, an event he has won twice, and then fly to Brazil for the first Olympic golf tournament in 112 years, but he is not daunted. To whet your appetite ahead of next weeks US PGA Championship, heres a look at ten of the best shots played at the tournament Im missing the opening ceremony of the Olympics because of the Travelers, because it means so much to my family.dddddddddddd Travelers did so much for me and my family, outside of my dad, because what people dont realise is what goes on behind closed doors, when it comes to cancer like that, he added.Obviously the person that has cancer is in trouble but, at the same time, so is your family; my mom had a man there for 42 years and then he passed away. So Travelers is always going to be very special to me. So thats first.And then obviously here, who doesnt want to win here. And then the Olympics. We dont know what to expect, playing for our country. My dad was in Vietnam, I love giving back to the military. So the Olympics, having the flag on my shoulder, or me representing the flag, United States of America, is very special.But we dont know what to expect there. Here we know what to expect when you win a major or to win Travelers, but when it comes to Olympics, nobody knows. I havent talked to anybody from 112 years ago.
