Vonn celebrates her second medal of the 2010 Games, a bronze in the super G
Both Julia Mancuso and Lindsey Vonn spent time in first position in the women's super G Saturday. But only Lindsey held on to claim a medal after impressive performances by the rest of the field.

Today, the Austrian coach set the women’s super G course, and today Austrian Andrea Fischbacher walked away with the gold and the country’s first alpine medal of these games. Coincidence? FIS and Olympic rules are such that each course—except the downhill—is set by a randomly selected country’s delegate, usually a coach. Naturally, the delegate sets the courses to favor their athletes’ strengths. But after watching today’s intense and extremely close competition, it would impugn Fischbacher’s performance to write off the win as a coincidence.
