ALPINE DRAMA. Lindsey Vonn crashed during the Giant Slalom causing her teammate Julia Mancuso’s run to be stopped midway. Mancuso, who won the Gold in the event at Torino, then had to wait some 13 racers for her do over. Mancuso, who was 3/10ths of a second behind the leader at the split prior to being “yellow flagged,” wasn’t as fast or fresh in her second run finishing in 18th place overall and 1.3 seconds behind the leader.
Vonn broke her finger. Mancuso had a meltdown.
Tears, frustration, more tears and lots of drama ensued.
NORTHERN HAITI HOPE FOUNDATION: After our recent trip to Haiti, we vowed to do more to help. Clean water is a critical issue for all Haitians. It's particularly problematic for those in rural areas. For $2,000 to $5,000 we can build a new well in a rural village as part of a program facilitated by the St. Barthelemy School and the Warrenton, VA Rotary. Send your donation to Wells of Health and Hope, c/o GPetty-VTA, 38 Garrett Street, Warrenton, VA 20186 and keep your eye on T.A.H. for progress reports. Thanks! CLICK ON THE PHOTO FOR MORE INFO.
