Vonn bounces back, capturing downhill

Sun., Feb. 27, 2011

Skiing hard and doing what she loves, Lindsey Vonn was back to her old ways – winning races. She captured a downhill Saturday, three weeks after a concussion curtailed her world championships. This marked the 40th World Cup victory of her career, extending her American record for men and women. Vonn finished in 1 minute, 40.93 seconds for her seventh victory this season. She clenched her fist and threw her head back as she crossed the finish line at the Swedish resort of Are, then waved to the crowd. “I did my best, and I think it was a good, aggressive run,” Vonn said. Stacey Cook of the United States was fifth and teammate Julia Mancuso finished 11th.
