American Lindsey Vonn completed a sweep in Alberta by winning a super-G at the World Cup women’s downhill on Sunday.
This is the third time that Vonn is required during two runs and a super-G in Lake Louise, after 2011 and 2012.
His victory lap was 1: 19.79, which beat two Austrian Tamara Tippler, by 1.32 seconds, and Cornelia Huetter, by 1.35 seconds.
The margin of victory was the largest in a test of women’s super-G since 1997, according to information provided by the US Alpine Ski Team.
Vonn totaled 14 victories in downhill and four super-G in Lake Louise, a place often dubbed “Lake Lindsey” because of the dominance of the US in the Alberta track.
The Canadians Larisa Yurkiw and Valerie Grenier finished 14th and 16th respectively.
“Every time you win, and even when the margin is more than a second, it gives a surplus of confidence, for sure, said Vonn triumphs totaling 70 career World Cup.
“I feel good and I know it’s going well for me in the super-G – and it’s not going too bad either downhill – so I feel like I’m in a good position for the next races.
“It was important, said Vonn. I felt that some people did not believe in my chances to win today, especially because Lara [Gut] had won the last two super-G here. ”
