LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – Ted Ligety will hit the slopes in search of gold while Gracie Gold takes to the ice during tonight's Primetime Olympic Coverage on WAVE 3 News starting at 8 p.m.

Ligety also looks to make history in the alpine skiing giant slalom final. Winning gold would make him the first man in Olympic history to claim the top spot in both the slalom and super-combined events. He will compete alongside fellow Team USA member Bode Miller.
