Before Aksel Lund Svindal headed back to his European office this month and Julia Mancuso headed to Mammoth Mountain this week for some speed training with the U.S. Ski Team, they were at the beach. Specifically, the beaches in Maui, Hawaii where the Mancuso family always vacations during the summer.
Svindal and Mancuso are a ski racing power couple. Things started getting hot and heavy after both of their stellar showings in the 2010 Winter Olympic Games in Vancouver. In case you forgot, Mancuso brought home 2 silvers in Downhill and Super Combined, and Svindal clinched a 1, 2, 3 – Gold for the Super-G, Silver for Downhill and Bronze for Giant Slalom.
They started making their seemingly fast romantic courtship after and slowing sharing it with us by posting pictures of them together hanging out on their Facebook Pages and Blogs last summer. The only thing it seems they have separate opinions on is their skis. Svindal signed with HEAD after the Olympics last year and Mancuso signed a deal with VOKL.
I would like to state that ever since the 2010 Winter Olympic Games, I caught the twinkle eye for Svindal. How could I not? He is one sexy beast on skis! I guess it makes sense for them to date since they are a double dose of sexy beasts on skis. I mean, Aksel if it doesn’t work out you can always give me a ring.
