SOCHI, Russia, Feb 09, 2014 (AFP) - Who's winning 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-long 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.

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.
