Jackson Hole, WY. The Jackson Hole News & Guide is reporting that Jackson Hole native Resi Stiegler will ski in the women's Olympic giant slalom in Sochi starting at midnight.
Stiegler was the final American woman picked for the event. The start list for the event was determined at a captain’s meeting early Monday morning.
The News & Guide reports Stiegler will wear bib number 41. Skiers will start in order of bib number, which means she will be in the first half of the group of 90 competitors.
The event will not be broadcast live in the United States.
