Lindsey Vonn, a favourite within the ladies’s downhill snowboarding race, and each the ladies’s and males’s hockey groups have an opportunity to give you the U.S. with a few degree of redemption. And if all else fails, there are nonetheless a couple of extra skiing occasions at the time table. However although the American citizens pick out up the % and play to their ancient shape for the remainder of the video games, our components places their overall medal rely at 26, which might slightly transparent Group USA’s asymmetric efficiency on the 2006 Olympics in Torino, Italy.
