    GARMISCH-PARTENKIRCHEN, Germany (UPI) -- Austria's Elisabeth Goergl opened this week's world Alpine skiing championships Tuesday by winning a squeaker in the women's super G event.

    The squeaker was later confiscated by her coach, who said Goeral kept playing with it and annoying everybody else.

    Was thinking the same thing, but I'm guessing it's one of those toys when you squeeze it will squeak.
