The World Ski Championships have started in Austria and after just one day, I have good news and bad news.

The good news first: Julia Mancoso, who won silver in the 2011 World Championships in Garmish Gemany, captured the bronze medal in Austria. Julia always steps it up for big events, and this is her fifth career World Championships Medal.

The bad news: Lindsey Vonn blew her knee out and had to be airlifted off the mountain. This is a devastating blow to the best Women Skier in in US Ski Team history, especially with the Olympics just a year away.

The US Disabled Ski team is also off to the World Championships in Spain and Tyler Walker is ranked number one in the world,


You can read and listen to the entire Tyler Walker interview here.
