Lindsey Vonn Wins Fifth Straight World Cup Downhill Ski Title

Lindsey Vonn of the U.S. clinched her fifth consecutive women’s World Cup skiing downhill title with a third-place finish today in Russia.

Germany’s Maria Hoefl-Riesch won the race in 1 minute, 49.17 seconds on the course to be used for the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics. Austria’s Elisabeth Goergl was second, 0.43 seconds behind.

Vonn, 27, leads Hoefl-Riesch by 231 points in the downhill standings with just two races, worth a maximum 100 points each, remaining in the season.

Vonn’s five straight downhill titles ties the record set by Austria’s Annemarie Moeser-Proell from 1971-75. She also joins Moeser-Proell (who won seven), Renate Goetschl and Franz Klammer as the only skiers to claim five championships in the discipline.

“It means a lot to me to be able to have the numbers that those legends of skiing have,” Vonn said on the U.S. Ski Team’s website. “But Moeser-Proell is the pinnacle of our sport and I have a ways to go before that.”

Vonn now leads Tina Maze by 448 points in the overall World Cup standings after the Slovenian could only finish 12th today.

Austria’s Marcel Hirscher moved to the top of the men’s giant slalom standings by winning in Bansko, Bulgaria.

Hirscher finished in 2:25.35 to claim his seventh victory of the season. Italy’s Massimiliano Blardone was second, ahead of Austrian Marcel Mathis.

Hirscher now trails leader Ivica Kostelic of Croatia by 118 points in the overall World Cup standings and second-placed Beat Feuz of Switzerland by 48 points. Kostelic and Feuz did not compete in today’s race.
