The U.S. Ski & Snowboard confirmed she will be unable to compete on Friday. She will not be replaced on the team.
"Everyone’s Olympic dream has a different outcome, and unfortunately mine was cut a little short when I ruptured both of my Achilles in training yesterday," Mancari says. "I appreciate all the love sent my way already, sorry if I haven’t responded, definitely taking some time for myself at this moment in time. However I’m staying super positive and optimistic and excited to get even better and stronger this summer. Thankful I get to stay and cheer on my teammates as they show the world what they’re made of the next two days. You know I’ll be cheering the loudest from the sidelines."
