Vonn wins at Beaver Creek

BEAVER CREEK – It simply isn’t as easy as Lindsey Vonn is making it look these days.

Vonn rang up victory No. 46 Wednesday at the women’s Birds of Prey super-G, the first ladies took to the course. It’s her fourth win in a row on the World Cup tour and fifth in six starts this season.

Battling back a severe case of nerves because this was the first time Vonn had raced on home snow, having trained during her formative years with then-Ski Club Vail, she finished in 1 minute, 10.68 seconds, 0.37 seconds ahead of Switzerland’s Fabienne Suter. Austria’s Anna Fenninger took third.
