KRASNAYA POLYANA, Russia (AP) — Friday is selection day for the Austrian and U.S. men's downhill squads at the Sochi Olympics.

Each team has four starting spots for Sunday's race.

For Austria, Matthias Mayer and Max Franz have already qualified and five other racers are fighting for the remaining two spots: Georg Streitberger, Romed Baumann, Otmar Striedinger, Klaus Kroell and Joachim Puchner.

Mayer was third in Thursday's first training session, Franz was eighth and the others finished between 19th and 35th places.

Austrian men's head coach Mathias Berthold says "it will be decided by times of tomorrow's training runs."

For the Americans, Bode Miller, Travis Ganong and Marco Sullivan already have spots. Coach Sasha Rearick says Steven Nyman, Erik Fisher and Jared Goldberg are in the running for the final selection.
