KRASNAYA POLYANA, Russia (AP) — Austria and the United States completed their squads for the Olympic men's downhill.

Steven Nyman earned the fourth and final U.S. spot, edging out Erik Fisher and Jared Goldberg with a solid training run Friday. He joins Travis Ganong, Marco Sullivan and Bode Miller.

The Austrians will go with Matthias Mayer, Max Franz, Georg Streitberger and Klaus Kroell for Sunday's race. Mayer was the fastest through the tricky course during Friday's training.

US 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.
