Lindsey Vonn, the three-time defending World Cup overall ski champion, won today’s super- combined race to follow her victory in yesterday’s downhill. Fellow American Ted Ligety won the men’s giant slalom.
The 26-year-old Vonn beat Austria’s Elisabeth Goergl and Nicole Hosp in Val d’Isere, France, to regain a narrow overall World Cup lead, three points ahead of Germany's Maria Riesch, according to governing body Federation Internationale de Ski.
Vonn had the fastest time in today’s super-G run, then was seventh in the slalom.
Ligety continued his dominance in the giant slalom, having now won all three races in the discipline this season. Cyprien Richard of France was second today.
