Julia Mancuso's World Cup Victory

Julia Mancuso's World Cup Victory
Julia Mancuso World Cup
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.

Despite stiff competition from several European venues, the Colorado sister resorts will host ski racing's biggest event for the third time in 26 years.

The International Ski Federation announced today that it had selected Vail and Beaver Creek to host the men's and women's World Alpine Ski Championships in 2015.

The FIS ruling council selected the North American venues over Cortina, Italy, and St. Moritz, Switzerland, thus denying Europe its eighth consecutive Championships.
