BEAVER CREEK, Colo. — Lindsey Vonn has captured her first World Cup win on U.S. slopes by taking a super-G in front of a big crowd that was cheering her with ringing cow bells.
Usually reserved for the men, the challenging Birds of Prey course hosted its first women's race Wednesday and Vonn turned in a dominating performance. She finished in a time of 1 minute, 10.68 seconds, beating Fabienne Suter of Switzerland by 0.37 seconds. Anna Fenninger of Austria was third on the course in Beaver Creek, Colo.
Vonn, who's from Vail, has been focused despite recently announcing she is getting a divorce. She's won four straight races since then.
Julia Mancuso of the U.S. was eighth.
