"I was confident from morning. There was a lot of electricity in the air...I was so focused. I knew that I just had to listen and follow my body. I watched the Alpine skiing today and saw a countryman win the Gold and thought, 'It is a good day for French skiing today.' It was good day for me."

Tim Burke takes the silver medal, giving the USA only its second World Championships medal ever since Josh Thompson in 1987.
