US Olympic skier Julia Mancuso recently did a photo shoot for GQ Magazine along with an accompanying article. The main theme of the photos and words...forget about Lindsey Vonn, I'm Julia Mancuso.
The 29-year old alpine skier has been very successful throughout her career, but it seems that she can never step out from behind the huge shadow cast by her teammate Lindsey Vonn. Sochi 2014 will be different for Mancuso...Vonn isn't there and there's a "new" girl in town.
Mancuso is brash, in-your-face, and has made no secret for her desire to be the poster-girl for US skiing. The rivalry with Vonn has always been there and hasn't always been friendly.
The 3-time Olympic medalist deserves the attention she will get in Sochi. She's worked extremely hard and, probably, her final Olympics will make her a household name.
Get ready Sochi...Julia and her butt crack are coming to town.
