WHO won what at the 2014 Winter Olympics on Sunday:

MEN
Alpine skiing - downhill
Austrian tyro Matthias Mayer stormed to gold in the blue riband men's downhill.

The 23-year-old clocked 2min 06.23sec down the 3.5km course for the first Austrian downhill gold since Fritz Stroebl in the 2002 Games at Salt Lake City.

Mayer also bettered his father Helmut's silver-medal showing in the super-G at the Calgary Games in 1998.

"Of course it means a lot to me," an emotional Mayer said. "It's really difficult to go down the track without mistakes."

Italian Christof Innerhofer took silver at just six-hundredths behind with Norway's Kjetil Jansrud claiming bronze, a further 0.04sec adrift.

World downhill champion Aksel Lund Svindal was fourth and another strong favourite, Bode Miller of the United States, was eighth.

30km cross-country skiathlon
Switzerland's Dario Cologna on Sunday powered to victory in the men's skiathlon at Sochi 2014, hanging on for the second Olympic gold of his career in an enthralling final sprint.

Cologna pushed ahead of his rivals with a bold move before the final corner at the Laura cross-country ski centre and just managed to keep his lead finishing in 1hr 08min 15.4sec ahead of an attacking Marcus Hellner of Sweden who took silver in 1:08:15.8.

Martin Johnsrud Sundby of Norway and Maxim Vylegzhanin of Russia engaged in a titanic struggle for bronze with the Norwegian winning by an inch in a time of 1:08:16.8.

WOMEN
Snowboard - slopestyle
Jamie Anderson gave the United States a slopestyle double following Sage Kotsenburg's victory in the men's competition.

The four-time X-Games winner produced the goods on her second run with a near-perfect 95.25 score.

That pushed Finland's Enni Rukajarvi down to second after her second run had produced a long-time leading 92.50.

Britain's Jenny Jones held onto third with 87.25.
