CORTINA D'AMPEZZO, Italy — A healthy Lindsey Vonn was feeling like her old self, skiing well and getting ready for football.
She finished second to Italy's Daniela Merighetti on Saturday in a World Cup downhill that was so windy she knew she couldn't have done any better.
Vonn then got prepared for an early wake-up call before Sunday's super-G, setting her alarm at 4 a.m. to cheer on Tim Tebow and the Denver Broncos in the NFL playoffs.
Last weekend in Bad Kleinkircheim, Austria, Vonn struggled with a stomach illness and uncharacteristically missed the podium in two speed races. This performance marked a complete turnaround.
MEN'S DOWNHILL: At Wengen, Switzerland, new Swiss ski star Beat Feuz won before his home fans Saturday, capturing a World Cup downhill on the classic Lauberhorn course while Bode Miller seemed poised to win but made a tactical error and finished fifth. Feuz was timed in 2 minutes, 35.31 seconds on the longest course on the World Cup circuit for a victory that gave him the lead in the downhill standings in his breakout season. Austria's Hannes Reichelt was 0.44 seconds back in second. Christof Innerhofer of Italy trailed Feuz by 0.49 in third.
BOBSLED: At Koenigssee, Germany, Beat Hefti of Switzerland won a World Cup two-man bobsled race Saturday to take the standings lead. For the U.S., Steven Holcomb and Justin Olsen finished 10th, and the team of John Napier and Chris Fogt placed 12th.
CROSS COUNTRY: At Milan, Sweden's Ida Ingemarsdotter won an individual World Cup cross-country race or the first time Saturday, beating Sprint Cup leader Kikkan Randall of the United States by 0.2 seconds.
