After four days of waiting for conditions to improve, 2006 Olympic Gold Medalist skier Julia Mancuso was finally ready to begin her downhill training on Monday — and RadarOnline.com was there!
In an exclusive interview, Mancuso took RadarOnline.com behind the scenes at the Winter Games in Vancouver, Canada.
“We’ve been waiting for four days now, so we should hopefully be on today,” the Lake Tahoe, California, native told RadarOnline.com. “I’ve always loved coming here. It’s hard work but I love to ski and it’s natural to be out here, pushing my limits.”
Mancuso’s teammate, Lindsey Vonn, recently sparked controversy with her sexy Sports Illustrated cover. But Mancuso is no stranger to sexy photo shoots — she’s got her own lingerie line called “Kiss My Tiara.” When it comes to Critics who panned Vonn’s pose on the SI cover, Mancuso says, “It’s good that skiing is being shown. Hopefully we’ll all go out and have good races and be on the podium with Lindsey.”
