WHISTLER, British Columbia – Julia Mancuso of Olympic Valley earned her second silver medal of the 2010 Winter Games on Thursday.

Mancuso finished runner-up to Germany’s Maria Riesch in the super-combined. Mancuso collected a silver medal in downhill on Wednesday.

Riesch had a total time of 2 minutes, 09.14 seconds to beat Julia Mancuso of the United States by 0.94 seconds.



Lindsey Vonn lost her bid for a second Olympic title, missing a gate and falling in the slalom leg. Vonn, who had said her badly bruised right shin was bothering her more than ever after her victory in Wednesday’s downhill, was last among the leaders to ski in the slalom run after being fastest in the morning downhill leg and was 0.07 seconds ahead of Reisch’s pace at the first checkpoint. She fell behind by 0.18 seconds at the second checkpoint, then missed a gate and lost her right ski before tumbling to the snow.

Anja Paerson of Sweden took the bronze, 1.05 behind Riesch.
