(got to 1:05 in the video to see the splits)
Lindsey Vonn, 31, is the winningest female ski racer in history and today she became winningesterer.
The USA’s Lindsey Vonn just won the Lake Louise, Canada downhill today. This was her World Cup record 68th win, her record 16th win at Lake Louise, and her 13th downhill win.
Her race started our rocky with a weird edge-catching-splits almost-fall before getting it together and charging recklessly to the finish line.
“I came in (to Fish Net) with a really direct line – probably a little bit too direct, and I caught my edge funny. I did the splits. I thought I was going down, then I somehow managed to stay on my feet. When I realized I was still in the course, I just got back into my tuck and tried to make up as much time as I could on the bottom,” said Vonn. “That was not planned. I should probably not do that tomorrow.” – Lindsey Vonn today
Lindsey Vonn just became the winningest female ski racer last year after undergoing 2 ACL sugeries in 12 months. No one knew if she’d be able to come back from those injuries, but no it’s obvious. At 31-year-old, Lindsey Vonn is back on top.
