(CORTINA D’AMPEZZO, ITALY) – Lindsey Vonn set a new record for women’s alpine skiing World Cup wins with her 63rd victory in the super-G at Cortina d’Ampezzo on January 19.
Vonn finished 0.85 seconds ahead of Austria’s Anna Fenninger, with Liechtenstein’s Tina Weirather in third. The American recorded a time of one minute 27.03 seconds. Fenninger was a massive 0.85 seconds down, with Weirather crossing the line in 1:27.95.
Vonn had equalled the 35 year-old record set by Austria’s Annemarie Moser-Proell by winning the World Cup downhill race at the same venue on Sunday.
The four-times overall World Cup winner and 2010 Olympic champion returned this season after a year out with knee injuries, sustained in a crash at the 2013 World Championships in Schladming.
