McConneloug added to US Olympic team

Mary McConneloug was the final mountain biker added to the US Olympic Team on Thursday by USA Cycling. As a discretionary nominee picked by a nine-person selection committee, she joins automatic nominee Georgia Gould. McConneloug is the highest-ranked American in the world in 10th. Last month in Val di Sole, Italy, she was the third-best American at the 2008 UCI Mountain Bike World Championships with a 20th-place finish.

The rest of the mountain bike team selections were announced earlier this month.
