What a race!!! It looked like Lindsey Vonn was on her way to her second Olympic gold medal of these Games, when underdog racer from Austria Andrea Fischbacher took it from her by .74 of a second!! Then right now, Slovenian racer Tina Maze shocked everyone by coming in with a time of 1:20.63 to take the silver medal, knocking Lindsey Vonn to bronze!!! The race isn’t over yet, but right now it looks like Fischbacher is headed for gold, with Tina Maze heading for silver, and Lindsey Vonn on her way to bronze. Julia Mancuso, while giving a solid race, has been knocked off the podium. The biggest threat to remain is Anja Paerson. We’ll let you know what happens!
