Lindsey Vonn does it again with a World Cup super combined win

Posted By: The Ski Channel on December 18, 2009 6:38 am

The girl is unstoppable. Lindsey Vonn has notched yet another World Cup victory on her belt by winning the World Cup super combined in Val d’Isere today. Her good friend Maria Riesch was behind her by 1.16 seconds, and Elisabeth Goergl was behind Lindsey by 1.39 seconds.

Lindsey’s major skills shine through in her downhill racing, although her slalom effort was clearly first rate as well. But in the downhill, Maria Riesch and Emily Brydon were the only two racers to finish within two seconds of Lindsey. In the ski racing world, two seconds is quite significant. “She did a good job executing her plan – nail the downhill then skiing smart in the slalom,” said U.S. women’s head coach Jim Tracy of Vonn. “I don’t think she totally laid the hammer down in the slalom but skied well. Her slalom is coming on.”

At this point in time, Lindsey Vonn and pal Maria Riesch are tied for first place in the overall World Cup standings. They each have 521 points.

Here are the results from today’s super combined races in Val d’Isere:
