Two days, two Olympic medals for Julia Mancuso.

After earning a silver medal in the women’s downhill Wednesday, the Squaw Valley skier captured another silver Thursday in the super combined.

Mancuso was in third behind teammate Lindsey Vonn and Germany’s Maria Riesch after the opening downhill portion of the combined. She then moved into the second position after recording the ninth-fastest time in the slalom.

Vonn, Wednesday’s gold medalist in the downhill, crashed on her slalom run.

Riesch, who had the seventh-fastest slalom time, won gold with an overall time of 2:09.14 between the downhill and slalom run. Mancuso posted a combined time of 2:10.08, while Anja Parson of Sweden took the bronze with a time of 2:10.19.
