2014 Olympics: Alpine Skiers Continue To Struggle; Mancuso Eighth In Super G
ROSA KHUTOR, Russia (Feb. 15) – USA alpine skiers continue to struggle in Russia — one medal. But, Julia Mancuso (Squaw Valley, CA) led Team USA once again Saturday, posting the best American finish in eighth at a rough and unforgiving super G, the final women’s speed event of the 2014 Sochi Olympic Winter Games.
Another difficult course set plus temperatures in the 40s yielded DNFs in seven of the first eight racers, but Austrian Anna Fenninger dialed it in for gold on the inconsistent course. The men try their luck at super G Sunday, the final alpine speed event of the 2014 Sochi Games.
