Marion Rolland of France had a heartbreaking fall just out of the gate, and did not finish. Just afterwards, Sweden's Anja Paerson had a huge and terrifying crash. I bet a CTV announcer will get in trouble for declaring, "That was awesome!" Marusa Ferk also had a heinous crash, sending her through one of the fences.
Today is the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Women's Downhill. Current world champion Lindsey Vonn is in Gold Medal position. Can Lindsey Vonn overcome injury to take gold, or will the Canadians continue in their quest to... own the podium?
American fans will be cheering for Lindsey Vonn, Stacey Cook, Julia Mancuso, andAlice McKennis. Canadians will be rooting for Britt Janyk, Emily Brydon, Georgia Simmerling, and Shona Rubens.
