Its going to be real interesting to see if NBC realizes that Mikaela is the best US female skier heading into these olympics. Will they market her at all or just stick with Julia and Lindsey.

I think if she keeps getting on the podium consistently leading up to the Olympics they will really promote her since she would be a likely lock for a medal. Right now Julia is kind of a wildcard. She typically shows up big on the big stages but is not a reliable lock for a podium. Lindsey is also a bit of a wildcard right now too. We really haven't seen much of her on snow since coming back from her injury. Who knows if she is back to her dominant form.
