USA triumph at Lake Louise

Text size Aa Aa

America’s Lindsey Vonn, who won the Lake Louise downhill on Friday, also dominated on Saturday in Albera.

This is her 55th World Cup alpine skiing victory, her thirteenth at Lake Louise.

Pushing right to the limit she entered a slide that surely would have seen any other Skier in a tumble but she was able to recover nicely and win with a time of 1:52.90 seconds

She will now race the super-G on Sunday and attempt to sweep all three races at Lake Louise for a second year running.

Stacey Cook finished half a second behind for an American One – Two.

Cook had waited nine years before achieving her first ever podium on Friday, but with another second place on Saturday they are coming think and fast.

She will surely give it all she has to finish a place higher on Sunday.

Third place went to Switzerland’s Marianne Kaufmann-Abderhalden. Also the first time she has made the podium.
