Colorado racer earns coveted title with secon-place finish in Italy
By Summit Voice
SUMMIT COUNTY — Vail’s Lindsey Vonn continued to strengthen her position as one of the best speed event ski racers in recent years by winning this season’s World Cup downhill title just one day after nabbing the super-combined trophy.
Paerson has five top-five finishes for the season, showing her consistency once again.
“It’s been a great weekend so far, clenching the super combined title yesterday and the downhill title today,” Vonn said in an interview with Ski Racing Magazine. She also leads the Super-G standing by 131 points. “I also have a chance to close things up tomorrow (Sunday) in the super G, so things are going really well. It was definitely a really good day and I’m happy with my run.”
Vonn also closed the gap in the race for the overall World Cup title to just 136 points with seven races to go.
