Greg Jones is the head coach of the Squaw Valley Ski Team. We talked to him shortly after he heard the news that Mancuso was a medal winner.
 
Jones: “I am excited!”
 
And Jones has good reason to be thrilled. He’s known Mancuso her entire life and coached at various times during her career. Jones says Mancuso’s skills were obvious from early on. But he says it isn’t just Mancuso’s talent on the slopes that makes her a champion.
 
Jones: “She also had a very strong mental attitude, even as a 12-year old, 13-year-old, that other athletes didn’t have.”
 
Jones says Mancuso hasn’t hit her stride yet…and she’ll get plenty of chances to prove that in the next few weeks.
