Vonn records 81st win ahead of Olympics


Lindsey Vonn claimed her 81st career victory on Sunday when she won the final women’s World Cup downhill before the Pyeongchang Olympics.

It was the American’s third straight triumph in the discipline after winning on the same hill the day before and in Cortina d’Ampezzo, Italy, two weeks ago.

Vonn clocked 1 minute, 37.92 seconds on the Kandahar course to beat Sofia Goggia by 0.11 seconds.

Vonn’s American teammate Stacey Cook crashed and was taken off the hill on a sled. There was no immediate news on her condition.
