Lindsey Vonn wins WC super-G

GARMISCH-PARTENKIRCHEN, Germany -- Lindsey Vonn of the United States won a World Cup super-G on Sunday to regain the lead in the discipline with one race remaining.

Vonn is chasing her fifth super-G World Cup title and stretched her record with a 23rd race win in the event.

"Yesterday was disappointing, so I came out with the right attitude," Vonn said after the race as she stripped to a sleeveless neon-yellow T-shirt with "making history" written on it.

Vonn was seventh in Saturday's downhill and made sure she bounced back.

"I wanted to ski my best and attack, and I did. A nice way to win," she said.

The American put together a winning time of 1 minute, 16.65 seconds in sunny conditions.

Overall World Cup leader Tina Maze of Slovenia was 0.20 seconds behind, and Anna Fenninger of Austria was 0.36 back in third.

Vonn's 65th career win, another record, gave her an eight-point lead over Fenninger in the Super-G standings. The last race in the event is at the World Cup finals in Meribel, France, later this month. Vonn could equal Katja Seizinger's record of five Super-G titles.

Maze increased her overall lead over Fenninger to 44 points.

"She has been putting a lot of pressure on me," Maze said. "I knew I had a good run."
