Vonn Wins Record 18th World Cup Super-G to Extend Overall Lead

Feb. 26 (Bloomberg) -- Lindsey Vonn won a record 18th super-G race in skiing’s World Cup to close on the discipline title and increase her lead atop the overall standings.

Vonn, who has already secured the downhill and super-combined titles, beat Liechtenstein’s Tina Weirather by 0.05 seconds in Bansko, Bulgaria, today with Daniela Merighetti of Italy in third.

The 27-year-old American holds a 94-point lead over Austria’s Anna Fenninger in the super-G competition with one race remaining as she aims to top the competition for a fourth straight year.

Vonn has a 528-point advantage over Tina Maze of Slovenia in the overall standings, with Germany’s Maria Hoefl-Riesch 28 points further back.
