Nolan Kasper

ROSA KHUTOR, Russia (Feb. 22) – The dramatic conclusion of alpine skiing at the 2014 Sochi Olympic Winter Games Saturday featured an impressive 13th by USA’s Nolan Kasper (Warren, VT) to top the results for Team USA during an incredibly difficult slalom finale. 

Ted Ligety (Park City, UT) skied into sixth place in his first run and put forth a heroic effort to tame the wild course, but he missed a gate and went out halfway through his second run. Five of the top eight skiers did not finish their second run on the deteriorating snow, while Austria’s Mario Matt was able to piece together a gold medal run.
