Bloom fails to medal

ON THE SNOW: Two-sport star Jeremy Bloom finished sixth on the moguls course in what will probably be the last stop in a skiing career that forced him to put his football ambitions on hold.

America's only medal went to Toby Dawson, who finished third, behind silver medalist Mikko Ronkainen of Finland and champion Dale Begg-Smith of Australia, who has dominated this sport the past few months.

Bloom gave up football because the NCAA wouldn't let him pursue ski endorsements at the same time. But his 25-second run down the mountain was average by his standards - a big splash of snow flew up after he landed poorly on his second jump.

The next stop on Bloom's journey will be the NFL scouting combine, which starts next week in Indianapolis.

QUICK HITS: Dawson's bronze was the only medal for U.S. men or women. American Travis Mayer, the silver medalist in 2002, finished seventh and announced his retirement. Teammate Travis Cabral came in ninth.

UP NEXT: Monday, men's aerials.
