Julia Mancuso Women's Alpine - who knew?
Alpine Skiing kind of caught me off guard
I have never watched Alpine Skiing much. I know who Bode Miller was.
But I caught Julia Mancuso and Lindsey Vonn's first medal wins and have been following it since recording all events these two awesome girls have been in.
It's been pretty cool and fun to watch.
Lindsey has been so strong skiing so hard over injury. She is quite amazing.
Julia showed her fun personality when she won and dropped onto her back and kicked her legs back and forth in the air like a kid. Awesome.
