Melissa Buhl Wins 4X World Championship

Yeah, Melissa! She made sure the USA kept the rainbow mountaincross jersey by besting Anneke Beerten, the number one qualifier, and former World Champ Jana Horakova. Apparently Anneke and Romana Labounkova made some contact and Melissa was able to leave them behind. Earlier today, Melissa took 10th in downhill, and she was the only woman in the Big Final to race both events.
