They started the Olympic women's downhill Thursday on Mt. Allan, and Pam Fletcher of the United States was the center of attention in the finish area, where television cameras, microphones and reporters' notebooks were thrust under her nose. It seemingly was just as she'd dreamed it would be when she started skiing as a toddler at her parents' ski area in Nashoba Valley, Mass. Except for one thing.
