Truckee's Sullivan Wins Downhill at U.S. Alpine Championships

By  | 

There's something about Mount Alyeska that agrees with Alpine ski racers Kaylin Richardson and Marco Sullivan.

Both won downhill events at the U.S. Alpine Championships on
Saturday, mastering the same mountain where they won titles in

Richardson finished in 1 minute, 10.18 seconds to edge Julia Mancuso (1:10.53) and Stacey Cook (1:10.72) for her second downhill
championship. World Cup overall champion Lindsey Vonn slid wide
near one of the final gates in soft snow and finished seventh.

Sullivan finished in 1:08.07, ahead of Erik Fisher (1:08.44) and Jeremy Transue (1:08.51).
