Vonn wins super-G

CORTINA D’AMPEZZO: American Lindsey Vonn continued her seemingly unstoppable pursuit of Ingemar Stenmark’s World Cup victory record by winning the women’s super-G at Cortina d’Ampezzo to take the overall lead of the competition on Sunday. A day after claiming a record 37th World Cup downhill win, Vonn was one of several skiers to benefit from a late start on the Olympia delle Tofane course in the spectacular Dolomites mountains. Starting with bib 19, the former Olympic downhill champion clocked a winning time of 1min 26.55sec to push Liechtenstein’s Tina Weirather off the top step of the podium. Weirather, with bib 18, finished second at 0.69sec behind Vonn with Germany’s Viktoria Rebensburg claiming third place at 1.15sec with bib 21. Vonn now has 75 World Cup victories, just 11 short of Swedish legend Stenmark’s tally of 86.
