Julia Mancuso Earns Bronze in Women's Super-Combined

Alexander Hassenstein/Getty Images Sport (KRASNAYA POLYANA, Russia) --  Female alpine skier Julia Mancuso earned a bronze medal on Monday in the Olympic super-combined with a time of 2:35.15.

Mancuso raced out to an early lead in the downhill portion of the competition, but took third place after she was unable to sustain the lead in the slalom.

Germany's Maria Hoefl-Riesch took the gold medal with a combined time of 2:34.62.  Austria's Nicole Hosp earned silver after she finished in 2:35.02.

Hoefl-Riesch had the fifth-fastest time in the downhill, but her run in the slalom earned her the gold.

Aside from this year's Olympics, Mancuso also competed in 2002, 2006, and 2010. She won a gold medal in 2006, and two silver medals in 2010.
