Switzerland's Sandro Viletta won the men's Olympic super-combined on Friday topping a shock podium that included neither favourites Ted Ligety of the US nor Frenchman Alexis Pinturault.
The 28-year-old, who had only one World Cup win and podium so far, won with a combined time of 2min 45.20sec, after one downhill and one slalom run.
Croatian veteran Ivica Kostelic was second at 0.34sec, bagging his fourth Olympic silver and third in the combined, with Italy's Christof Innerhofer third at 0.47sec.
The temperature soared to 13 degrees Celsius shortly before the start of the slalom leg, turning the snow to slush.
Defending champion Bode Miller made a big mistake during his downhill run and finished sixth, while world champion Ligety had a ragged slalom leg and placed 12th.
French contender Alexis Pinturault went out toward the end of his slalom leg.
