Medal For Malysz

Poland's ace ski jumper Adam Malysz has won a silver medal in the Vancouver Olympics. A last minute return to form saw the plucky Pole win glory at the games, finishing a close second behind Swiss star Simon Ammann.

It had been a somewhat shaky season for Malysz, who can lay claim to being the only ski jumper to have won the world cup four times. That said, the 32 year-old was beginning to be talked about as a man of yesterday. But on the eve of the games, during a training session, he surprised everyone by breaking an Olympic record. Luckily, on the big day, he proved it was no flash in the pan: "After eight years I have returned to the Olympic podium and have received a medal, it is extraordinary," he said.
