Road to Sochi: 2014 Gold Diggers

Can Bode and his fellow U.S. racers match their stellar Vancouver performance? The excitement starts Sunday.

Freakishly fast and irresistibly likeable Ted Ligety may be the clear favorite in GS, with a great shot at super combined gold as well.

And fresh-faced world beater Mikaela Shiffrin, at age 18, may be untouchable in slalom, an event she has utterly dominated for the past year (while making big strides in GS).

And feisty, fearless Julia Mancuso may well rise to the occasion as she so often has in big events, snagging one of the shinier medals in GS or super G or even downhill.

Miller, Ligety, Mancuso and first-time Olympian Shiffrin headline what may be strongest American ski squad ever.

Even without the injured Lindsey Vonn, winner of 59 World Cup races, the American alpine racing Olympic team looks one of the strongest ever. The U.S. Ski Team announced its Sochi team Sunday. It includes proven medal winners like Bode Miller, Ted Ligety and Julia Mancuso along with an Olympic newcomer—18-year-old Mikaela Shiffrin—who’s already demonstrated that she’s the woman to beat in slalom and has been making impressive inroads in GS. The Games begin in just two weeks, starting with the men’s downhill on Feb. 9 and the women’s super combined on Feb. 10.

Ligety Holds Off Hirscher for 4th GS Title

American star takes insurmountable lead into final week of World Cup racing.

From the department of forgone conclusions: American GS ace Ted Ligety clinched his fourth World Cup GS title Sunday with a win in Kranjska Gora, Slovenia.

Vonn, U.S. Women Continue to Crush

Ligety, on the verge of the Wengen podium, skis out near the finish.

Lindsey Vonn, the third-winningest racer in World Cup history, got back into the record-chasing business over the weekend with a win in the downhill at Cortina, Italy, and the American women continued to crowd the top of the speed-event leaderboards.

On the men’s side, it was Lauberhorn weekend in Wengen, Switzerland, where Italy’s Christof Innerhofer won the tour’s longest downhill. Marco Sullivan was the top American finisher in 13th. GS points leader Ted Ligety appeared headed for a second-place finish in the Wengen combined but skied out near the finish of his slalom run.

Julia Mancuso arrives at this weekend’s season-ending U.S. National Championships in Winter Park, Colorado fresh off the success of her first World Cup victory in four years in what was on paper the second-best season of her career.

Just over two weeks ago at World Cup finals in Lenzerheide, Switzerland the Squaw Valley, California native outdistanced her nearest challenger – Swiss favorite Lara Gut - by a colossal eighty-one hundredths of a second to claim the ladies downhill. For Mancuso, it was her first victory on tour in over four years dating back to March 3, 2007, when she won a downhill in Tarvisio, Italy.
