Lindsey Vonn looks to capture downhill and super G titles in Switzerland this weekend

After a big Winter Olympics exhale, Lindsey Vonn continues along her history-making path.  Vonn leads the World Cup overall standings by 137 points over Germany’s Maria Riesch.   If she can hold off Riesch, her only real threat, Vonn will become the first American to win three straight World Cup overall titles.

Next up for Vonn: Crans-Montana, Switzerland.  Your Crans Montana fun fact:  Roger Moore ditched Gstaad and purchased a chalet in Crans-Montana.

This weekend’s races are of the speed kind.  There’s a super combined on Friday, a downhill on Saturday, and a super G on Sunday.  Vonn leads in all three disciplines.
