Lindsey Vonn’s a perfect ’50’ in World Cup wins

Lindsey Vonn celebrates her 50th World Cup win.

You knew it was coming, but the result is still amazing: Lindsey Vonn claimed her 50th World Cup victory on Saturday (Feb. 4) by winning a downhill race in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany by nearly half a second.

Even Vonn, famous for her steely resolve, was reduced to tears at one point after the race as she grasped the enormity of becoming only the third woman to reach the 50-victory plateau. She now trails only Annemarie Moser-Pröll (62 wins) and Vreni Schneider (55 wins).

Something tells us that Schneider’s second-place standing is in danger this season, given Vonn already has four wins in downhill alone. Read more.
