Vonn becomes the World Cup's most successful female skier


Lindsey Vonn’s skiing career reached new heights on Monday.

The American became the most successful female in Alpine skiing World Cup history when she notched up a record 63rd career race win.

The 30-year won a Super-G at the Italian resort of Cortina d’Ampezzo.

The temporary race podium could only watch on in admiration.

The day before, Vonn tied the record of 62 wins with Austrian Annemarie Moser-Proell after winning a downhill at the same resort.

But she raced into a league of her own on Monday.

The four-times overall World Cup champion has now amassed 32 downhill victories, 21 Super-G’s, three giant slaloms, two slaloms and five combineds.

The manner in which she cruised to victory in the Dolomites suggests the former Olympic and World champion will add more wins to her impressive record breaking tally before she hangs up her skis.
