KRASNAYA POLYANA, Russia -

Maria Hoefl-Riesch won her second straight Olympic super-combined title Monday, with downhill leader Julia Mancuso settling for bronze.
    
Hoefl-Riesch was fifth fastest in the downhill, but her superior slalom skills gave her the gold.
    
The German's two-run time of 2 minutes, 34.62 seconds was 0.40 seconds faster than silver medalist Nicole Hosp of Austria.
    
Mancuso, 0.53 behind Hoefl-Riesch, punched the air with her right first after seeing she had won her fourth career Olympic medal for the United States.
    
At the 2010 Vancouver Olympics, Hoefl-Riesch won two gold medals, including the super-combined. Mancuso took silver that time.
