CORTINA D'AMPEZZO, Italy (AP) - Julia Mancuso is not afraid to say it: her entire season will be defined by the Sochi Olympics.

And for a skier who has always thrived at the games, that suits her just fine.

Mancuso says, "I have three weeks now until the Olympics and I still have my goals set on Sochi. ... So every race week now is just a building block to that and obviously the World Cup is not much of a focus for me anymore. It's more training for the Olympics, because of how it started. But every race is a really great opportunity."

Mancuso's best result this season was 12th in a giant slalom in St. Moritz, Switzerland, last month. Her only other top-15 finish was 13th in a downhill in Altenmarkt, Austria, last weekend.
