Mancuso Leads Three U.S. into Top 25

 
 
ST. MORITZ, Switzerland (Dec. 16) - Julia Mancuso (Olympic Valley, CA) tied for 10th Sunday in a World Cup super G to lead three U.S. women into the top 25. Sweden's Anja Paerson won her second race in 24 hours and took over the World Cup overall points lead. WCSN.com has on-demand webstreaming coverage.

Paerson, the current super G world champion, covered the 2.05K course in 1:15.06. Emily Brydon of Canada finished second, just four-hundredths of a second back.

Mancuso had a time of 1:15.57, tying her with Canadian Britt Janyk, who won a downhill last weekend at the Audi Aspen Winternational in Colorado. Vonn finished another hundredths of a second back while Libby Ludlow (Bellevue, WA) was 24th in 1:16.53.

"This was a tight race today. Jules and Lindsey were a half-second off the lead and they were 10th and 12th, but less than three-tenths away from the podium. That's how close the women's tour can be. It's tight," U.S. Head Coach Patrick Riml said.

"The conditions were perfect. Lindsey had a little problem at the top, went down on a hip but then she got it going. Jules lost a little bit at the bottom. I was pleased with Libby; this should help for her confidence some more," he said.

The women head next to St. Anton, Austria, for a downhill Friday and a super combined Saturday before the Christmas break.
