Vonn falls in second attempt for gold

In her second attempt at gold in as many days, American Lindsey Vonn fell during her slalom run of the women's super-combined and didn't medal.

Maria Riesch of Germany took the gold medal and Julia Mancuso of the United States earned the silver.

Vonn led Riesch by 0.33 after the downhill portion. But Vonn failed to get her ski around a right-hand gate and fell in the slalom run.

Vonn will get a day off today before her next event, Saturday's super-G, where she is an overwhelming favorite. She also is entered in the giant slalom and slalom next week.
