(video of Linsdey’s win in the downhill at Cortina, Italy today)
Lindsey Vonn just broke the all-time World Cup downhill record by winning her 37th downhill today in Cortina, Italy breaking Annemarie Moser-Proell’s downhill win record. Lindsey is now the winningest woman in downhill skiing.
Lindsey is currently leading the downhill standings by 122 points…
“I love Cortina! It’s the place I got my first podium. Last year, breaking the overall wins record—that was incredible. It was just another perfect day in Cortina.” – Lindsey Vonn, today
Lindsey Vonn is simply on fire.
She has now won 7 World Cup races this season and this was her record extending 74th World Cup win (next closest woman has 62 world cup wins). The only person to have ever won more World Cup races is Ingemar Stenmark with 86, and that record appears very much within Lindsey’s reach. This was Lindsey’s 10th wind at Cortina.
“The more people talk about the record, the harder it is to break them. I try to stay focused on my skiing. I thought I skied really well on the top—I went a little too straight on the bottom, but was able to pull it off … I’m just really happy to come away with another win and another record.” – Lindsey Vonn today
Linsdey is now within 10 points of overall points leader Laura Gut of Switzerland.
Linsdey will race super G in Cortina tomorrow. She recently won the super G in Austria on January 10th.
