KRASNAYA POLYANA, Russia — It happened again for Boise resident and Eagle High graduate Erik Fisher.
He is in Sochi for the Winter Olympics, but after Friday's final training session, was denied the final racing spot on the U.S. team for Sunday's downhill.
Four years ago in Vancouver, Fisher made the U.S. Olympic team but didn't race because of a broken wrist.
Steven Nyman earned the fourth and final U.S. spot this time, edging out Fisher and Jared Goldberg with a solid training run Friday. He joins Travis Ganong, Marco Sullivan and Bode Miller.
U.S. coach Sasha Rearick said he used the second training session as a "one-run shootout," with Nyman tied for 18th. Fisher and Goldberg wound up several spots behind, he said.
Fisher's mother, Shelly, who lives in Middleton, and Nyman's mother, who lives in Sundance, Utah, are traveling to Russia together to watch Sunday's race.
