American Ted Ligety grabbed gold in two events this week at the Alpine World Ski Championships in Schladming, Austria. Ligety won gold in the men's super-G and then added on a win in the men's super-combined.

Ligety's last medal in the super-combined was his gold in the 2006 Olympics in Torino. Now he has set himself up to be the first male skier to sweep three titles at the Alpine World Ski Championships since France's Jean-Claude Killy in 1968.

Lucky for Ligety, his final event on Friday is the giant slalom, which is also his best event.
