Rain, rain . . . Bode Miller, in pursuit of redemption after a disastrous performance in Turin in 2006, leads the US men's Alpine ski team as it pursues gold in the downhill -- weather permitting, that is. Men's race director Guenter Hujara told the Associated Press that the race is at "high risk" of being postponed if the rain continues and it does not get colder on Whistler Mountain. 2:45 p.m.

Look out, Bonnie: Short-track speedskating icon Apolo Anton Ohno bids to enhance his already golden legacy today when he bids for his sixth career Winter Olympic medal. Ohno competes in the 1,500 meters today; he's currently tied with Eric Heiden for most medals won by an American male, and he a single medal shy of Bonnie Blair's record for medals won by a US competitor at the Winter Games. 8 p.m.

Kearney's turn:Hannah Kearney of Norwich, Vt., could become the first US athlete to medal today when the women's moguls freestyle team competes at Cypress Mountain. She is considered one of the favorites. 10:30 p.m.

And don't forget . . . Medals in the 7.5 km sprint in the women's biathlon, the 5,000m men's speedskating competition, and ski jumping will be among the six medals awarded today. All three US ski jumpers qualified for the finals, including Nick Alexander from Lebanon, N.H.
