Its chaos at the Super-G...22 athletes have raced with only 12 finishing. Looks like Austria have won gold with Germany silver and Austria bronze

Slovenia with a massive upset against Slovakia. Absolutely massive upset. Probably the biggest hockey upset since 1980.

Sweden also beat Finland in women's hockey. Which is another really big upset.

I don't feel very patriotic about Austria these days having lived outside for a long time, but really pleased for Fenninger and Hosp as we were having a bit of a poor games, but I don't like the fact that one of the Austrian coaches designed the super g course, seems a bit of an advantage.

Amazing come back from the Swede in the women's x country, watching her reel them in and take out the German has been my favourite moment of the games so far!

Nah, Slovenia outplayed Slovakia for all 60 minutes. The only reason Slovakia was in the game was because Slovenia took a lot of dumb penalties.

That's honestly quite impressive.

I don't think it was that big of an upset. They played Russia tough for 2 periods. Belarus over Sweden in 2002 was more shocking..

Slovenia has less hockey players than my hometown of 82,000 people. Slovakia finished 4th at the last Olympics and is a former World Champion with a team full of NHL players (including a one of the best defenseman in the world). Slovenia has Anze Kopitar and nothing else. Slovenia has none of the pedigree or history of upsets that a Belarus (did, they suck now) or Denmark or Norway have had.

Mind you if my hometown was its own country in the 80's and early 90's, it'd probably cause a lot of upsets too.

To be fair, Slovakia has sucked unbelievably since they first stepped on the ice.
