Giant Slalom win makes Lindsey Vonn first American to win four overall ski titles

Lindsey Vonn

Lindsey Vonn’s incredible legacy grew  larger on Friday (March 9) when the American won a Giant Slalom in Sweden that clinched her fourth overall World Cup title. That’s more than any American; the great Phil Mahre won three in his storied career. Read more.

The victory, the 52nd in her storied career, also means Vonn has a shot at  a season-ending score that no woman has ever reached: 2,000. At 1,808 points with five races to go she has a chance to make that previously-unreached level. The current record is held by Croatian Janica Kostelic, who scored 1,970 in 2006. (Vonn discussed that goal earlier this week in her weekly diary in the Denver Post. Read the diary.)
