Vonn’s course ‘correction’ saves Super G season title ahead of hard-charging Mancuso

Lindsey Vonn struggled at the end of her run but clinched the Super G season title.

It was hardly a typical Lindsey Vonn victory march on Thursday (March 15) in the Super G, but the American’s sixth-place finish was enough to clinch the season title in the discipline. Vonn now has four titles this season: Downhill, Super G, Super Combined, Overall.

The fact is, Vonn had a huge lead near the end of the run, but misread the course and slowed down so much to make the next gate that her lead evaporated (and then some). It could have been disastrous had she not finished, as fellow American Julia Mancuso turned in another strong run for second in the race and wound up second for the season, just 72 points behind Vonn. See who won the race and more in this story.

The flawed finish for Vonn reduces her chances for a 2,000-point season with just a Giant Slalom and Slalom remaining. She now stands at 1,948.
