Skiing: Vonn wins 11th Super G

Lindsey Vonn claimed her 11th career Super-G title with victory in the season-opener at Lake Louise on Sunday, Sky Sports informs. The World Cup overall champ clocked a time of one minute, 20.72 seconds to extend her winning streak at the Canadian resort to seven straight years. Vonn’s win came as sweet revenge over second pla­ced Maria Riesch who had beaten the-26-year-old American on the previous two downhill runs at the venue. Ger­man Riesch clocked 1:21.55 and led the standings some time until she was eclipsed Vonn’s attacking run on the 1.97 kilometre Whitehorn Mountain course. Vonn’s compatriot Julia Man­cuso finished third in 1:21.61 after initially giving Riesch a fright with her blistering pace at the top of the course only to lose time on the flats. “To­day I dropped the hammer a little bit more and believed in myself,” said Vonn.
