Vonn reigns supreme in Lake Louise
This was the third time that Vonn has achieved the clean sweep of winning all three races in Lake Louise, the last time was in 2012. The win also took her into the lead in the race for the Women’s Overall.
After the race Vonn explained: “on the steep slope I was aggressive, but I think I still have a bit more to give it. Now this I always say, you can always find something on the video program. I am very, very happy – I have more advantage than I expected. It was the perfect ending to a perfect weekend.”
Talking about the record from the Super G races, “It was a big deal,” Vonn said after the race. “I feel like there were some people that doubted whether I could win today, especially because Lara (Gut) had won the last couple races here in super-G. And also my technician made some bets with people, so I felt a little bit like I had to come through. It was my physio Lindsay’s last day with me travelling on the road, so I kind of wanted to end with a bang. I had a pretty good run. I’m pretty happy with it.”
This was Vonn’s smoothest race run of the week and was helped by better weather conditions than from the previous day.
In Beaver Creak for the Men’s Giant Slalom, both Ted Ligety and Alexis Pinturault crashed out on the first run while Andre Myhrer produced a career best Giant Slalom result to take fourth place, just one-hundredth off the podium. Mathieu Faivre took seventh for the HEAD World Cup Rebels.
