Often overlooked as spectators and sportswriters fawned over Lindsey Vonn’s considerable talents, Julia Mancuso earned her fourth Olympic Alpine medal – a feat no other American woman has accomplished.

Mancuso earned her fourth medal, a bronze, in the super-combined at the Sochi Games on Monday. Vonn has two Olympic Alpine medals.

“Skiing and growing up with someone like Lindsey, who’s just amazing in the World Cup and breaking records left and right there – to have something that I can break records in at the same time is also fun and exciting for me,” said Mancuso. “If I can keep the Olympics as my thing, that’s fine, and I’m really proud of it.”

This is the third Olympiad in which Mancuso has won a medal. She won the gold in the giant slalom at the 2006 Turbin Games, then silvers in the super-combined and downhill at the 2010 Vancouver Games.

Over the next two weeks, Mancuso will have the opportunity to increase her medal total, beginning with Wednesday’s downhill. It is conceivable she could catch the record for most women’s Alpine Olympic medals – six – which is currently shared by Croatia’s Janice Kostelic and Sweden’s Anja Paerson.
