COLORADO SPRINGS, CO (Feb. 15) - Downhiller Daron Rahlves (Sugar Bowl, CA), who conquered Kitzbuehel's fabled Hahnenkamm downhill for the first victory in that race by an American skier in 44 years and had two other top-3s in World Cup races, is the U.S. Olympic Committee's Male Athlete of the Month for January.

USOC officials said Rahlves was cited for his historic victory in Kitzbuehel, for finishing second in the Lauberhorn in Wengen, Switzerland, the previous weekend and for finishing third in a downhill in Bormio, Italy. Runnerup was tennis player Andre Agassi, who won the Australian Open.

Coincidentally, the USOC announcement came as Rahlves was being honored in Kitzbuehel for his dramatic win by having his name painted on one of the resort's gondolas, an honor reserved only for winners of the Hahnenkamm, which is regarded by many as the so-called Super Bowl of ski racing.
