Olympic crush: Swiss ski racer Lara Gut

A bronze medalist in downhill four years ago in Sochi, Swiss alpine ski racer Lara Gut is back at the Winter Games and on the hunt for more Olympic silverware. While the biggest headline she’s made at the Games so far came as a result of crashing into a photographer during the women’s giant slalom, both Gut and the photographer luckily came away uninjured. The 26-year-old who speaks fluent Italian, German, French, English and Spanish still has more events to compete in and could yet add another Olympic medal to a list of honors that also includes three World Championship silvers and two bronze.
