On Wednesday Julia Mancuso finished runner-up to U.S. teammate Lindsey Vonn in the women's Olympic downhill, but as the competition heated up on the slopes, there is great competition off the slopes. Mancuso has her own lingerie line called " Kiss My Tiara," a play off that fact Mancuso wears one for good luck - including her fans.
As the Washington Post reported,
We can only guess this Silver Medal win will help business.
But not to be outdone Gold Medalist Lindsey Vonn also shed her clothes before the Olympics choosing a swimsuit instead of lingerie. The 25 year-old skier along with fellow Olympians, Clair Bidez, Lacy Schnoor, and Hannah Teter posed for the 2010 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue (on newsstands now.)
One can only wonder what the next four years will bring for these two on and OFF the slopes, literally! Whatever it is - we're sure USA will have fun cheering them on!
