Mancuso wins bronze, first Alpine skiing medal at the Sochi Games for USA
Julia Mancuso, or “Super-Jules” as she is called by her teammates, has an on-snow resume boasting five medals (two silver and three bronze) at World Championships, seven races in regular World Cup competition and now four Olympic medals, including a gold in the giant slalom at the 2006 games in Turin, Italy, silver in both downhill and combined at the 2010 games in Vancouver and the United States first Alpine skiing medal at the Sochi Games Monday, taking bronze in women’s super combined.
Mancuso is now the favorite for Wednesday’s downhill, where Julia could match Bode Miller’s record of five Olympic medals.
Besides her many wins, Super-Jules also has over 52,000 followers on Instagram. You can find Julia Mancuso photos on her Instagram account and her latest news on JuliaMancuso.com, her official Web site.
