When she’s not racing down a mountain at 85 mph, three-time Olympic skiing medalist Julia Mancuso loves to strip down from her snowsuit to her swimsuit. In the offseason, you’ll find the Squaw Valley, Calif., native hitting the beaches in Maui, where she lives part-time.
But don’t expect to find the 29-year-old uber-athlete working on her tan. Mancuso, who has already showed her dominance on land — she has more Olympic medals than any other female American Alpine skier — is taking on the sea, too.
Mancuso spent last summer diving headfirst into the sport of free diving.
