Tina Maze wins Super G at Worlds as Lindsey Vonn suffers season-ending knee injury

FIS LogoUPDATE, Feb. 6: Here’s what Lindsey Vonn had to say to her fans via Facebook the day after her crash in the World Championships. The quote.

Feb. 5: Tina Maze continued her spectacular season with a win in Super G at the 42nd FIS Alpine Ski World Championships on Tuesday (Feb. 5) while Lindsey Vonn saw her injury-plagued season ended after she suffered a major knee injury. (Watch video of the crash here.)

The Slovenian star, who is dominating the women’s circuit this season, was able to add a second Worlds gold to her collection by staying focused on a day when snow and fog caused numerous course delays. It wasn’t all bad news for the American team: Julia Mancuso came up with another strong performance on a big platform, racing to third behind Switzerland’s Lara Gut. (Read more.)

For Vonn, it was a painful and disappointing end to a season that saw her hospitalized by an intestinal infection during November. Although she was able to return and win several races, the American took a health break of a couple of weeks to work on the conditioning lost during the illness in the hopes it would help her at Worlds. Now she faces an arduous rehabilitation leading up to the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi.
