Julia Mancuso Takes Bronze in Women’s Super Combined

Julia Mancuso was on the cover of our February issue of Natural Solutions and now she’s taken bronze in Sochi

Hoefl-Riesch went through the slalom in 50.90 seconds, giving her an overall time of 2:34.62 to take her second consecutive super combined gold medal. Austrian Nicole Hosp took home silver with an overall 2:35.02, while United States hopeful Julia Mancuso scored bronze at 2:35.15. 

The super combined competition is a relatively new, unique event that combines skiing disciplines to theoretically find the best all-around person on the slopes. The first day of the competition involves downhill skiing, followed by a second day of slalom. Downhill typically features the highest scores and is the longest discipline while slalom shortens the skis and forces the competitors into a more winding and technical strategy.
