Lindsey Vonn breaks World Cup record; disguised Tiger Woods shows up to surprise her


It looks like 63 will always be Lindsey Vonn's favorite number.

The Associated Press reports the Minnesota-born Olympian broke a 35-year old record on Monday when she won a ski race in Italy. With the win, Vonn breaks Annemarie Moser-Proell’s record of 62 World Cup victories.

It was Vonn’s first win in super-G this season. Vonn, 30, earned her record-tying No. 62 win on Sunday. Vonn has won 32 downhills, 21 super-Gs, three giant slaloms, two slaloms and five combined races.

The record comes comes after two knee injuries in 2013 kept Vonn out of the Sochi Olympics and left some wondering if she would be able to return to racing.

The Golf Channel reports that Tiger Woods surprised Vonn at the finish line.

Vonn exclaimed: “No way!” when she saw him.

On Sunday, Vonn said that Woods was watching from his home in Florida as she tied the record. She mentioned that Woods will be in attendance for some of her upcoming races in Colorado.

“I didn’t think this could get any better than yesterday with my entire family here but now with Tiger here this is unbelievable,” Vonn said.

Woods was wearing a face mask with a skeleton design that covered most of his face as the race began.

“I knew it was him immediately,” Vonn said. “He loves that stupid mask."
