With all of the top skiers down the mountain, it looks as though Lindsey Vonn of the U.S. will win the bronze medal in the women's super-G.

Vonn, the 17th skier down the slope, briefly held the lead with a time of 1:20.88 before being passed.

Andrea Fischbacher of Austria is currently first, with a time of 1:20.14.

Tina Maze of Slovenia is second with 1:20.63.

Julia Mancuso of the U.S., the first skier down the mountain, is seventh with 1:21.50.

Mancuso said it was unlucky to draw first bib, and she was the first to make a mistake at the Frog Bank turn.

"I wish I had more information. I knew when I crossed the finish line I blew it," Mancuso said.
