Good as Gold...and Silver

Well, I couldn't resist: I had to post an update on the women's downhill now that the results are live at Vonn finally has that gold medal to hang around her neck, and Mancuso was the surprise of the day by grabbing the silver. Yay! The last time we saw a U.S. team double up in skiing medals was back in 1984 at the Sarajevo Games with brothers Phil and Steve Mahre going one-two in slalom and Debbie Armstrong and Christin Cooper taking gold and silver in giant slalom.

As Mancuso twittered (@JuliaMancuso): SILVER!!!!! feels like gold:) well, actually dont get to feel it till tonight!!!! so stoked!

And apparently today's race was filled with its fair share of crashes. Not that it's a good thing to hear about skiers crashing, especially when at those crazy fast speeds, but it will make for some entertainment tonight. I can't wait for the coverage to start at 8 p.m., 7 p.m. central. Check out the race report online, too. Photo to come. Posted by Kate
