Lindsey Vonn Wins GS In Austria
SOELDEN, Austria -- Lindsey Vonn used a blistering finish to win the season-opening World Cup giant slalom Saturday and become the fifth female skier to win a race in all five Alpine disciplines.
The three-time overall champion was fourth after the opening run before an impressive finish to win in a combined time of 2 minutes, 24.43 seconds.
Vonn is the second American skier to complete the discipline sweep after Bode Miller. Both Lindsey and Bode compete on HEAD skis, a proud sponsor of Learn to Ski and Snowboard Month.
