She captured 20th on Friday, in the first of two downhill's this weekend on the new Klammerstich course. “It's really exciting to be in the top 15 in downhill. There was a time that I never thought it would happen,” Forsyth said. “I'm just trying to focus on my skiing and let the results follow. I can't complain about the result today, that's for sure,” she added.
