With Lindsey Vonn out for the 2014 Sochi Olympics, who will be this year’s hottest Olympian? The official vote isn’t in yet but American skier Julia Mancuso is throwing her name in the ring.
Mancuso, who took home to silver medals from the 2010 games and a gold medal from the 2006 games, recently posted for GQ in a skimpy bathing suit.

Mancuso has had some great success on the slopes but she is still surprised every time she wins. In an interview with GQ, the Olympic skier said: “I started to tell people I’d just worn my lucky underwear.”
Some people have billed Mancuso as “Lindsey Vonn’s replacement” but let’s not sell this Olympian short. Mancuso may not be in the spotlight as much as Vonn (she isn’t dating Tiger Woods after all) but she is still one of the best skiers in the world. Will find out if she is THE best later this month. Let’s hope that she’s wearing her lucky underwear.
