Maze cracks Lake Louise duck to win downhill

The latest womens’ world cup events have been held at Lake Louise where Slovenia’s Tina Maze won the downhill at last after years of trying to crack the Canadian powder.

It is her second win this season and 25th overall, and it takes her into a World Cup lead as she takes her double gold Sochi Olympics form into the rest of the season.

In second place by just six hundredths of a second was Austria’s Anna Fenninger and in third was Tina Weirather from Liechtenstein.

However, much interest was focused on the skier who ended up in a lowly eighth place; Lyndsey Vonn, making her return from injury, was well behind the leader. She will have to wait to add to her 14 Lake Louise wins.
