Another win for Vonn as she surges into World Championships

Publish date:

Lindsey Vonn has extended her World Cup win record to 64, boosting her confidence going into the Alpine World Championships next week.

Last week, she broke the record for most World Cup wins, and Sunday – a day after struggling in the downhill, placing 23rd – she bounced back and added another win to her record.

The Minnesota native finished 24 seconds faster than Austria's Anna Fenninger in a super-G race in Switzerland Sunday for World Cup win No. 64, The Associated Press notes. She became the first woman to win the super-G at the Swiss resort three different times, CNN reports.

"I tried to really push the limits and be smart in places where I knew there would be trouble," Vonn said, according the AP. "Now I have a lot of confidence going into the world championships."

She's the favorite to win both the downhill and super-G events at Worlds in Colorado, which start Feb. 2, NBC Sports reports.

Vonn is scheduled to race the super-G Feb. 3 and the downhill Feb. 6, the news station says.

Injury woes forced Vonn to sit out last year's Sochi Olympics. A documentary on Vonn's climb back from two knee surgeries will air on NBC Sunday at 2 p.m.
