Mancuso wins the Olympic bronze medal in the Women’s Alpine Skiing: Combined event. Though the American takes first place after the downhill race, her combined time of 2:35.15 minutes is not enough to secure silver or gold.
Slalom for me is kind of like a game of luck. Roll the dice and it’s on, or roll the dice and it’s off.
Mancuso talks about competing in the Sochi Olympics and her best event:
My best event is Super-G. I’m competitive in all my events, but Super-G has been most consistent for me. Ironically, that’s one event I don’t have an Olympic medal in, but I’m really excited. I think I have a good shot.
Mancusso talks about competing in her fourth Winter Olympics:
For sure it’s exciting. Because it gets kind of mundane and repetitive going World Cup to World Cup. I mean, the venue changes. It’s definitely a big stage and a big opportunity. Even though the races are very similar, there’s a lot more on the line. For me it’s really cool because our sport is really European, so you get to show off what you do to your friends and family and they can actually follow along.
Mancuso tells Shape Magazine about her biggest competition on the slopes.
Lindsey Vonn is queen of the downhill, so if she’s skiing well and healthy, she’s the one to beat. There’s also Tina Maze from Slovenia. She had an incredible season last year. We were always neck and neck in my best event, the Super-G. That’s the girl to beat for me.
