    Dahlie shut out, snow disrupts events

     NAGANO, Japan (AP) -- The Nagano Olympics: Too much winter, not enough games.
     However the harsh conditions didn't bother Finnish cross-country skier Mika Myllylae, who survived the near-blizzard to take gold in the men's 30-kilometer classical race Monday (Sunday night EST).
     Five-time gold medalist Bjorn Dahlie of Norway, the hometown hero of the Lillehammer Games, was not as lucky with the weather. Dahlie, who needs one more gold medal to set a men's Winter Olympics record, finished 20th after picking the wrong wax for his skis on the difficult course.
