Stiegler 9th After Combined Slalom

February 17, 2006

SESTRIERE, Italy (USST Press Release)—Resi Stiegler (Jackson Hole, WY), competing in her first Olympics, is the top American following the slalom portion of the women's combined as she sits in ninth. Julia Mancuso (Olympic Valley, CA) is in 11th and Kaylin Richardson (Edina, MN) is 15th. Lindsey Kildow (Vail, CO) did not finish her second run.

Going into Saturday's downhill, Austrian Marlies Schild leads the field with a time of 1:21.22 over her two slalom runs at the Colle venue. Croatian Janica Kostelic is second in 1:21.68 and Austrian Kathrin Zettel is in third with a time of 1:21.75.

Stiegler's combined time of 1:23.44 is 1.53 seconds behind Schild. Mancuso recorded a 1:24.60 and Richardson finished in 1:25.00.

Stiegler was seventh after the first slalom run, while Mancuso was 10th, Kildow 11th and Richardson 18th.

In Wednesday's Olympic Downhill, Mancuso was the top U.S. finisher in seventh, while Kildow was just behind in eighth.

The downhill segment of the combined was scheduled to start at noon Friday, but high winds in Sestriere forced a postponement.

The downhill will now be run Saturday starting at 2 p.m. (Torino time).
