ARE, Sweden
(Feb. 9) - Julia Mancuso (Olympic Valley, CA), crediting a change in attitude to weather delays last week, stormed through the lone run of slalom Friday to earn the silver medal in super combined - the second for the U.S. Ski Team after four races - behind Anja Paerson of Sweden at the 2007 FIS Alpine World Ski Championships. Paerson, the super G champion Tuesday as racing began three days behind schedule at the championships, won in 1:57.69 while Mancuso became the first U.S. skier to medal in a major championship in three consecutive years. Her combined time for the downhill and the one run of slalom was 1:58.50 with Austrian Marlies Schild taking bronze (1:58.54). Kaylin Richardson (Edina, MN), an eye-opening 14th in the downhill, was 12th overall with a two-run time of 2:00.94.
The men return to action Saturday at 6:30 a.m. ET with Bode Miller (Bretton Woods, NH) the defending downhill champion. NBCSports.com and MediaZone.com are providing live coverage of every race through the end of the championships on Feb. 18. There also is live interval timing available at http://livetiming.usskiteam.com.
Two years ago, Mancuso made her international breakthrough with the bronze medal in both super G and giant slalom at the 2005 World Championships in Bormio, Italy. Last winter, she was Olympic GS gold medalist...and now silver medalist as super combined.
"I just have a nice little box at home and I'm collecting them," she laughed at a post-race press conference, adding that she finds it interesting to learn more about previous U.S. medals success. "I still go into every race to do my best," she said.

Coach: Mancuso is big-stage performer "Julia, really knows how to turn it on, doesn't she?" asked Women's SL/GS Head Coach Chris Knight. After inspecting the slalom course and taking a couple of runs, he said, she was having trouble with her boots, so he told her to change into her giant slalom boots, which should be more comfortable. "It worked perfectly." ...

The next women's race is Sunday with the downhill before the championships switch next week to running gates with the four-skier team event closing Worlds Feb. 18.

Stevens Pass Special Events




Jay Peak

We’re expecting 2-4” throughout the day today. New snow coupled with intense grooming on all of our beginner and intermediate terrain means you’ll be hitting on some great conditions today. Conditions on the open trails are mostly machine groomed on a hard base and depending on when/how much snow we get you'll probably be looking at some powder on top of that. Glades could use a couple/few inches of snow – the wind earlier this week left them a little windswept.
