Best of the U.S.: Julia Mancuso, Stacey Cook, Leanne Smith.
Best of the rest: Lara Gut (Switzerland), Maria Hoefl-Riesch (Austria).
U.S. chances to medal: Lindsey Vonn being out means opportunities for Mancuso and Cook, who have posted recent top-10 finishes in World Cup. Mancuso also finished third in super-G at last year's world championships in Austria.
Little-known fact: Picabo Street won the super-G at the 1998 Nagano Olympics by 0.01 over Austria's Michaela Dorfmeister, the narrowest margin in Olympic alpine history.
