The United States Olympic Committee, in conjunction with U.S. Ski & Snowboard, today announced the addition of alpine skier Tricia Mangan (Buffalo, New York) to the 2018 U.S. Olympic Team.
She replaces the quota spot previously held by Jackie Wiles, who was injured on Feb. 3 in competition at Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany.
Mangan, 20, skied for Holimont Race Team in Western New York, was recently fourth in super-G at the FIS Junior World Ski Championships in Switzerland, and snagged her first points and a 19th-place finish in alpine combined at the FIS World Cup in Lenzerheide, Switzerland, earlier this season.
Team USA now stands at 244. Updated rosters can be found at TeamUSA.org/2018Olympics.
