Park City, Utah Feb. 12, 2002 (AP by Jaime Aron)--The "Dinner Roll'' wasn't good enough to get Jonny Moseley a medal. Travis Mayer doesn't have a cool nickname for his best move--but he now owns a silver medal.
Mayer finished second in the moguls Tuesday, bumping his better-known teammate to fourth.
Janne Lahtela of Finland won the gold and Richard Gay of France got the bronze.
Mayer is a latecomer, having competed in just two World Cup events before the Salt Lake City Games. He thought so little of his Olympic chances that late last year he told his family not to buy tickets.
Moseley, the gold medal winner at the 1998 Olympics, superbly executed his signature move and had a nearly flawless run.
