Julia Mancuso commented on her performance, “I knew it was going to be a really big fight for the gold medal today. Both courses were in perfect condition. I had a mistake in the downhill, so I wasn't expecting much. I was just trying to get some more practice on this downhill and on my slalom skis. You'll see me on Sunday, I'll be racing and I will be going fast. The color of medal I want is gold. If you want to win you have to have an absolute best run and be on the limit. It's going to be really cool to see what our team can do. We've got three other athletes wh
o can be on the podium and not online casino one of us came here for anything other than a medal.”
