5 Claws-Out Athlete Cat Fights

Catfight alert! U.S. skier Julia Mancuso (right) has had it with teammate Lindsey Vonn (left), and is letting the press know all about it. “People are having a hard time reaching their potential because it’s such a struggle for attention,” said Mancuso. “You come to meetings after races and it’s like it’s a bad day if Lindsey didn’t do well.” Her anger might not just be stemming from Vonn’s sometimes distracting photo shoots—Vonn also (maybe) blew Mancuso’s chances of coming in first place in the slalom. When Vonn crashed ahead of Mancuso on the course, officials had to have Mancuso start her run over because of “deteriorating conditions.”

Vonn was not pleased with Mancuso’s words. “It definitely has hurt me that she said some negative things,” Vonn told the Seattle Times. “All I can do is continue to support her like I always have been and hope that she reciprocates that.” [Newser]
