Lindsey Vonn Continues Strong Comeback
American skier Lindsey Vonn won a World Cup downhill race Saturday on the same course where she re-injured her troublesome right knee one year ago, clinching a 61st career victory to continue her strong comeback following two operations.
Vonn had a clean run on the Oreiller-Killy course to finish 0.19 seconds ahead of early pace-setter Elisabeth Goergl of Austria and Viktoria Rebensburg of Germany, who tied for second.
After nearly two years without a victory, the 30-year-old Vonn won a downhill at Lake Louise, Canada, two weeks ago and finished second in super-G the next day.
She goes for a fourth straight podium in Sunday's super-G.
