Winter sports: Vonn wins World Cup super-G

Associated Press

CORTINA D’AMPEZZO, Italy — Lindsey Vonn won a super-G race Friday on the Olympia delle Tofane course, reclaiming the lead in the overall World Cup standings.

The American sped down the twisting layout in 1 minute, 21.74 seconds. Fabienne Suter of Switzerland was second, 0.67 seconds behind, and Anja Paerson of Sweden was third, 0.74 back.
The results were not yet official because lower-ranked skiers were still coming down.
Maria Riesch of Germany, who had been in the overall lead entering the race, finished outside the top 10.
The weekend races continue with a downhill on Saturday and a giant slalom on Sunday.
Only one more stop on the women’s calendar — in St. Moritz, Switzerland — remains before the Vancouver Olympics open on Feb. 12.
