Women’s Olympic Downhill: It’s On!

Up late to watch the women’s downhill live from Sochi.  Rooting for Julia Mancuso all the way!  I think my dream podium would be:  Mancuso gold, Maria Hoefl-Riesch silver, Anna Fenninger bronze.  Lindsey Vonn will be missed, of course.  Very, very sad for Tina Weirather, out with a leg injury incurred in training a few days ago – she deserves to continue her winning season.
