TAHOE CITY, Calif. (AP) — Two of the Sierra Nevada's most famous skiers have donated some of their Olympic memorabilia to a museum at Lake Tahoe.

The newly acquired items from Julia Mancuso and Daron Rahlves are now on display in Tahoe City, California at the Museum of Sierra Ski History and 1960 Winter Olympics.

Mancuso is the only American female skier to win four Olympic medals, including a gold at Torino in 2006. She donated the racing suit she wore in the most recent Olympic Winter Games in Sochi where she won a bronze in the combined championship.

Rahlves donated his wind shell, racing helmet, goggles and participation medal from the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver, along with his travel bag from the 2006 Olympics in Torino.
