Lindsey Vonn of the US competes during the FIS Alpine Ski World Cup Super-G in St Moritz, Switzerland on January 25, 2015. Vonn beat Austria's Anna Fenninger and Austria's Nicole HospAmerican Lindsey Vonn made up for a disappointing downhill performance by powering to a stunning victory in Sunday's super-G in St Moritz. It was Vonn's 64th World Cup victory, the 30-year-old having drawn level with, and then passed, the previous all-time record of 62 set by Austrian great Annemarie Moser-Proll last weekend in Cortina d'Ampezzo. Starting with bib number 17, Vonn laid down a near-perfect descent of the upper and middle sections, with just two minor mistakes on the tricky, tight bottom third. Tiger Woods' girlfriend touched speeds in excess of 87kph as she timed 1min 23.55sec down the 1.9-kilometre-long Engiadina course, the perfect boost before next month's World Ski Championships on home snow in Colorado.
