US Ski Team pushes back announcement of squad
The U.S. Ski Team has pushed back the announcement of its Vancouver Olympics roster by a day to see if any extra spots become available.
The team’s international results dictate how many skiers it can bring to the Olympics in each event. Some nations may not use their full quota, making additional spots available. The Americans currently have 18 spots to divide among the men’s and women’s squads.
The delay doesn’t affect skiers such as Lindsey Vonn and Bode Miller, but the competitors on the bubble will be anxiously awaiting the announcement on Tuesday.
