Maze has a starlet's good looks and a great singing voice. And she is not a bad skier either. In fact, she is extraordinary. Winning a gold in super-G and two silvers in the super-combined and giant slalom at the recent world championships in Schladming, Austria, she then proceeded to break the all-time points record of “Herminator” Maier over the weekend.
Although American skier Lindsay Vonn has taken more of the spotlight than Maze, Vonn's crash at the world championships may pave the way to more attention for Maze. For her part, Maze showed absolute horror and concern for Vonn after the accident.
