U.S. Women's Alpine Ski Racing Team

By

Julia Mancuso and Mikaela Shiffrin are heading up a strong team of U.S. women racers and hoping for a recovered Lindsey Vonn to join them on the road to Sochi. Twenty-three podiums were amassed by the team on the 2013 World Cup circuit and another two in the World Ski Championships - gold by Shiffrin and a bronze by Mancuso.

In 2013, Coach Chip White had all six of his speed team athletes on the podium and, for four of them, it was the first time. Look for those results to roll right into 2014 and Sochi - this team is deep, dedicated, determined and destined for a big showing.
