Vonn Wins Women’s Super-Combined Ski Title After Race Cancelled

Feb. 19 (Bloomberg) -- Lindsey Vonn of the U.S. claimed her second World Cup skiing title in two days after fog forced the cancellation of today’s super-combined race to give her an unbeatable lead in the discipline.

Vonn, 27, leads the super-combined competition for a third straight season, with Slovenia’s Tina Maze unable to overhaul a 55-point deficit after the event in Sochi, Russia, was scrapped.

Vonn yesterday matched the record of five straight downhill titles Austria’s Annemarie Moeser-Proell set between 1971 and 1975. The American has a 448-point lead over Maze in the overall World Cup standings, with defending champion Maria Hoefl-Riesch of Germany 38 points further back.

Austria’s Marcel Hirscher now only trails men’s World Cup leader Ivica Kostelic of Croatia by 18 points after winning a giant slalom and slalom in consecutive days in Bansko, Bulgaria.

Kostelic was absent because of a knee injury he suffered in a super-combined victory on Feb. 12.
