Lindsey Vonn Wins in Lake Louise

 LAKE LOUISE, Alberta — Olympic gold medalist Lindsey Vonn returned to the top of the Lake Louise, Alberta, podium Sunday with a commanding super-G victory over Maria Riesch of Germany. Julia Mancuso was third as six Americans finished inside the top 25.  “Today I dropped the hammer a little bit more and believed in myself,” said Vonn, who barely escaped a near-crash on Saturday. “For me the bottom line is never giving up.”  Vonn (1 minute 20.72 seconds) crushed the field by nearly a second, just under an hour before teammate and fellow Olympic gold medalist Ted Ligety won the Birds of Prey giant slalom in Beaver Creek. It was the first time since 2006 that two Americans won World Cup races on the same day. The last duo was Vonn and Bode Miller.  Lindsey lived in the Vail Valley when she was younger and trained with the Ski & Snowboard Club of Vail before moving onto the US Ski Team.  When she is in the United States she lives in Vail and trains on the Gold Peak race courses in the winter along with public appearances and charity work.
