(Sochi Games) Medalist Mancuso fails in giant slalom
(02-18 15:45)

Four-time Olympic medalist Julia Mancuso failed to finish the first leg of the giant slalom today, skiing out fewer than 10 gates from the end of her last event at the Sochi Games.
The American won the gold in giant slalom in 2006, a pair of silver in 2010, and a bronze in the super-combined last week. No other US woman has won more than two Alpine medals.
The only women's event left on the Sochi skiing schedule is the slalom, and the U.S. ski team said Mancuso won't enter that race.—AP
