Plagiarized from the pages of Ski Racing. Steve Nyman, a kid from Orem, Utah, crushes the competition one day and breaks his leg the next. Major bummer.
|Steve Nyman is one of the U.S. Ski Team’s most exciting young prospects. He blazed onto the team out of nowhere in 2002, a laid-back powder skier from Utah who relied on a natural feel for the snow. Earlier this week, Nyman won a two-run Europa Cup downhill at Altenmarkt, Austria, then went out the next day and broke his leg in an ugly crash on the same course.|
