A big winner on the Lake Placid slopes may well be little Liechtenstein, which has produced not just one Wenzel, but two. Andy and Hanni, a brother and sister act, are so hot that they could take four medals in the slaloms—and pose a threat in the downhills, too. The always-strong Swiss again have redoubtable downhillers in Peter Müller and Marie-Theres Nadig. Canada's Ken Read and Steve Podborski are strong challengers, but crash-prone. The daring Annemarie Moser-Pr‚Äö√†√∂‚Äö√†√áll is Austria's whole downhill and slalom show—and she's particularly tough when it counts. In the slaloms, bet the farm on the incomparable world champion, Ingemar Stenmark of Sweden, to blow them all off for two gold medals. And what of the U.S.? In the women's downhill, Cindy Nelson has more experience, but watch for a surprise attack from teammate Heidi Preuss, who might peak at just the perfect moment.
