After several near misses, American Lindesy Vonn finally got her first FIS World Cup super-G win in Lake Louise.
Vonn, who had three super-G podium results to go with her multiple downhill victories in Lake Louise, won today’s Bombardier Lake Louise Winterstart in a time of one minute 20.72 seconds.
“I skied a solid run, with aggression and passion and I am really happy with the win,” said Vonn, who won by over half a second. “I have always lost the super-G in Lake Louise by a very small margin so I wanted to make sure there was no room for doubt today.”
Vonn placed second in Lake Louise in 2009, 2006 and was third in 2004.
Germany’s Maria Riesch got the third podium in the three races in Lake Louise, finishing in 1:21.55 followed by American Julia Mancuso in third.
The next FIS World Cup women’s races are super-G and giant slalom races in St. Moritz Dec. 11 and Dec. 12.
